Updated Railway Booklet

Back Cover
Front cover 2018 Railway Booklet

The excellent article by H W Paar on the Salvation Army Railway has more than stood the test of time.
It has now been updated, refreshed and extended with rare and valuable pictures of the Salvation Army Colony.
One of the colony’s greatest achievements was the development of a transport system, including tramways, a railway line and wharf used to transport bricks by sailing barge from the colony’s brickworks, and raw materials back from the Salvation Army’s City Colony wharf in London.

Other articles written about this subject include:
Railway track remains found;

Article on the Introduction of the railway

The booklet’s extensive references and footnotes reflect a justifiable pride in the Salvation Army’s successful creation of an environment where thousands of destitute people from London were helped to rebuild their lives.
