The New Zealand Railways Magazine, Volume 6, Issue 2 (June 1, 1931)


Modestly tucked away under a glass cover in the Railway Museum at York, and in the midst of a hundred and one relics of the old days of travel, is the single object whose passing brings its own note of regret (says a writer in the London Star).

The faded oblong strip of paper, is a fourth-class railway ticket from Scotland, and recalls the days when thrifty folk could economise by travelling in railway trucks, seated on the floor, without protection against wind or rain.

This ticket is only one of the scores of curios relating to the transport of bygone days and which have been collected and housed in the Railway Museum.
