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.

  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!
