The Red Light on the Railways Classic Reprint Book Description:

Excerpt from The Red Light on the Railways Starting from the accepted fact that the entire commercial prosperity of our land depends, to a very remarkable degree, upon real efficiency and cheapness in transport, I want in this small volume to point out that the drawbacks in our system or railways are the causes behind the increasing tendency towards losing the premier commercial position that we, as a nation, held before the War. I maintain that the present system is wasteful to an alarming extent. Those who have any knowledge of railway management will not venture to dispute this statement, or to deny that a great deal can be done to give cheaper transport, both for passengers and for goods. It is an opinion loosely held by the casual thinker that the workers on the railways have as their main objects in life the obtaining of better wages and shorter hours.
