AN ARMOURED TRAIN. FIELD GUN AND MAXIM. ARMOURED ENGINE. SPLENDID BIT OF WORK. Hearing that the latest armoured train, which has been got ready by the railway authorities, was to leave, a "Bulawayo Chronicle" representative paid a visit to the locomotive shed, where the engine and one truck had been armoured, and also to the en gineer's yard,.where another truck was receiving the last touches to its ar mouring. It is no exaggeration to say (observes the "Chronicle") that the armouring of the engine is a splendid piece of work; Mr. Macnamara, to whom the whole credit is due, has, without know ing it, followed the example given by the armouring of the engines at Kim berley, where every necessary appli ance was to hand, in contrast with the case here. The engine is a three wheel coupled passenger one, very strong and fast, the best that has gone down yet. She can easily, though not called on to do it up here, do her 50 miles an hour. The whole of the en gine is boxed in with. quarter-i...
