RAILWAY TIME TABLES [To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] SIR,—Referring

to Mr. J. O'Brien's letter in a recent issue of the Spectator, it is surely difficult to improve upon the L.M.S. Railway Company's system of showing all p.m.. train times with a thin stroke between the hour and minute figures to distinguish them from a.m. times, and inserting a note on every page to the effect that this hi done: Italies are flied, moreover, for the times of trains which run on 'certain days of. the week only, while the ordinary lines used fOr separating coin/this are thickened in the case of Sunday trains--I ain; Sir, &c.; ' M. ANDREW CASSELS. Staincliffe, Salisbury Avenue, St. Albans, Herts.
