If you have not yet sampled the Minutes summaries, these might be an excellent place to start. They contain much fascinating information about how the routines of a new railway were being built up from scratch. Detailed instructions are given about the staffing of the Shoreditch terminus, even down to the time the stationmaster should have his lunch! There are also glimpses of the attitudes of the period (Among the porters “one … should have one shilling p. week extra not only to give him authority over others and to be called on when anything [is] wanted or has gone wrong but also to give every and each porter a something to look up to as a trifle better than that which he has at present”)
