MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Bowral Free Press — 22 March 1884
MIS C E L L A N E 0 U S. At ClaphanT" Junction, where the groat railroad systems of Loudon connect, tlio rails lie together like the wires of a piano. Sixteen hundred trains a day run over them. There is no shrieking of whistles or clanging of bolls. They keep their signals for their officials, and outsiders must expose themselves at their own' risks. A tunnel way for tho passengers connects the whole, so that no one is allowed to cross tho rails oxcopt the employes, who grow foolhardy and now and then como to grief. On the average one man is killed every six woeks. For originality commend us to the navvy who recently travelled from Gundagai to the railway works at Goal Cliff, drawing a covered handcart containing bedding, &c., and having suspended underneath it a num ber oi buckets, billy cans, and other such fixtures. It may bo hardly correct to say that he has drawn the cart all tho way, for on the back of tho vehicle is rigged a mast, with yard-arm, sail sheets, ami brac...
