A Suggestion For Future Ministers Of Railways!

A Suggestion For Future Ministers Of Railways!

I was overjoyed when I saw that the N.Z. Railways Magazine was going to have a Children's Page. Please can I come into Trainland? I thought I would shunt in quickly before the rails were crowded, for my boilers will soon burst if I don't hurry up and tell you what I've thought of suggesting. Now, wouldn't it be jolly if we could have rank and file; give points for drawings, good writing or letters, stories, poems, and when you've got ten points you are Cleaner So-and-So, and gradually work up the ladder until you are Minister of Railways or Mayor of Trainland.

Dorothy Stanton.

28 Clifton Street, Addington, Christchurch.

Trainland's officials (whose pictures are on the first page of our Trainland) thank you for your bright ideas, Dorothy. However, for reasons of safety, comfort and economy, they have agreed 'twill be best if all are equals. So, instead, we will all travel through Trainland as first-class passengers!
