Re-reading a couple of railway related books, I came across the following in one about the MARLOW BRANCH by WILD SWAN.  Shows that there is nothing new in this world.......

Resuming services after the March 1912 Coal Strike, a report by the South Bucks Free Press:

Quote
Fares from Marlow to Paddington were increased from 3/5d and 6/9d to 3/11d and 8/- for 1st and 3rd class respectively.  The reporter also pointed out that 'Marlow', one might almost say of course, has been dealt with more drastically than other stations.  The first class return Marlow to Paddington is now 3d more than the combined total of Marlow-Bourne End and Bourne End-Paddington returns.  In other words money can be saved by booking twice.

They must mean 3rd and 1st respectively.

Yes, I noted that but wanted to quote everything as was without correcting anything.

I have been re-reading some of my collection of Wild Swan books in recent weeks.   They really did produce some excellent titles.  Admittedly pricey but worth it.   David & Charles were also good but not quite in the same league.
