BRITISH RAILWAYS • f0 appears to have passed unnoticed. I

had expected a storm of protest in this week's issue.

If his friend Dick, travelling by the night express ' from Inverness, arrived at King's Cross on time, or at any time, it is a miracle. This train is scheduled to arrive in London at Euston!

If this is the result of the presence on board of the real Sir Brian Robertson, I hate to imagine the os and confusion arising from the employment of ix's corps of substitutes!
