Waiting Room Weekly Round-Up
Pretty uneventful week railways-wise; more hard work, but then what changes. However, I have left the library in which I work after six and a half years - I have been manager for four. So, I am very sad about that.
So on with the round-up.
"Attempts to defraud companies" - Evasion of Railway Fares - 1849
The Career of an Engine Driver, 1840-1891
A Serious Charge Against a Station Master - 1888
Examinations for New Railway Clerks - 1850s and 60s
"The first shock of a great earthquake" - Dickens and Railway Construction
Wi' fine pair o' legs - A Railway Navvy's Ditty - 1858-59
