The New Zealand Railways Magazine, Volume 5, Issue 9 (April 1, 1931)


“Missing a train is a terrible business, even if you miss nothing else in consequence; and the inner disarray, the blow and wrench to thoughts and feelings, is now often far worse than any mere upsetting of arrangements. A chasm suddenly gapes between present and future, and the river of life flows backwards, if but for a second. It is most fit and natural to lose one's temper, but the throwing out of so much moral ballast does not help one to overtake that train!“—Vernon Lee.
