On the shop track and the end of their day’s work this is where they take their time from plus final inspection time.

  1. A 6 day a week job?
    The railways must have been a bastion of 6 days long after other workers went to 5. I seem to remember by this time my Dad, who worked in an office downtown, worked one Saturday a month. Railwaymen were said to love their jobs despite things like long hours. Again, the things seen in this picture have completely disappeared. Thanks for capturing this moment in time.
