Snuffy Lyr Add: Wreck of the Old 97 (52* d) RE: Lyr Add: Wreck of the Old 97 12 Dec 16


97 was the Southern Railway's Fast Mail train, and the locomotive hauling it on the day of the crash was #1102. The company could be subject to severe penalties for failing to keep to the schedule laid down by the US Mail

Presumably train 38 would be a normal passenger service, where punctual arrival on time was not so crucial.
