Maryborough Railway Management. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Figaro and Punch — 19 September 1885

teryborongh Railway Management. A great deal of dissatisfaction appears to exist : amongst the raiWay employees stationed at. Mary borough. My attention has recently been frequently called to alleged grievances in relation to the ad ministration in this branch of the Railway depart ment; and I am told that experienced railway officials are continually leaving Maryborough, dis contented with the treatment they receive, thus necessitating the employment, in their stead, of ini experienced youths, who may, at any time, become the ignorant-cause of a disastrous and expensive railway; accident. ., I: have generally let such complaints slide) but, being still pestered with them, I think it may be judicious to give an illustra tion! proving the existence of cause for some little discontent. < An engine driver was the other day in charge of a train, running from Gympie to Maryborough. He received no notice whatever of there being any alteration in the ordinary time-table, and dul...
