RH097: A Hundred Years of the Railway Inspectorate, 1940.

NEW MAY 2022.  This is a 20-page booklet containing a reprint of the article 'Centenary of Railway Inspection', published in the Railway Gazette of 12 July 1940.

There are no illustrations. It includes a four-page Foreword, which may not have appeared in the original. The main article surveys the developing responsibilities of the Inspectorate since formed by the Board of Trade in 1840 - to approve of new works, to oversee safety (such as the matter of how passengers in a train might raise an alarm), and to investigate mishaps and accidents. It might be less well known that their responsibilities extended to tramways and trolleybus systems as well. There is a list of the Inspectors, always drawn from the officers of the Royal Engineers.

The file is word-searchable and is provided with bookmarks. It will be available to download as soon as payment has been made. You go to your account and click on ‘Downloads’. New customers create an account as they place their order.
