A Conversation for Class Segregation and the Evolution of the British Railway Carriage
dphillipson Started conversation Mar 30, 2014
A type of class segregation omitted in this discussion is Workmen's Tickets, sold up to the Beeching-era reorganizations of railways. These were tickets even cheaper than day-returns, but for use only on trains approx. 6-8 a.m. and 5-7 p.m., supposedly to enable the proletariat to get to work (and possibly to segregate men in dirty overalls from petit-bourgeois office workers.)

Hello - thanks for dropping by. You've made a good point there - did you use to catch a Workers train by any chance?
