Not Just Any Railway Guard — 3 Comments

  1. Wow! Great story and I’m impressed by the distance he travelled. My grandfather was also a railway guard, but just an ordinary one. Family friends remembered that if you were running late, too bad, he blew his whistle and the train left.

    • That is so funny Pauleen, but timetables are timetables and he obviously wanted to stick to the rules 🙂

  2. Thanks Pauleen, pretty amazing to think a distance like that was travelled throughout his career isn’t it. Many a train has been missed by commuters due an efficient guard just doing his job; I remember it well when I caught the trains in Sydney!
