RC047 Passenger Tickets, 1930s.

NEW MARCH 2019.  This is a classic text on Passenger Tickets on railways, tramways and buses, describing the situation as it was in the 1930s. At that time Lionel Wiener wrote a series of articles on the topic in the Bulletin of the International Railway Congress Association. In 1939 these were collected in book form, and that is what forms the basis of this file.

The book contains xxix + 358 pages, and these are all present. The text includes no fewer than 771 monochome illustrations: some are of ticket machines (both the outside and the inside), but most depict examples of tickets from all over the world. A startling one is of a very ordinary GWR ticket overprinted with a big swastika!

If you wish to get more idea of the topics covered, you can download the contents list from the book HERE.

Lionel Wiener was a Belgian railway writer and a Professor at the University of Brussels. Under a pseudonym he also composed comic operas, both the libretto and the score.

This file is word-searchable and has bookmarks to the main sections. It is a large file (76 MB) - it would have been possible to reduce the size, but as a consequence some of the fine detail visible in the tickets would have been lost.

The file will be available to download as soon as payment has been made. You go to your account and click on ‘Downloads’, though because of its size it may then take a minute or so to complete the process. New customers create an account as they place their order.
