Female driver and guard on the preserved North York Moors Railway, by Chris Hogg, 1994. Women have always been employed by the railways, but started out in typically "female" roles, such as working in canteens. However, during the First and Second World Wars, they were employed in a wider variety of roles, to replace the men who had gone to fight. By 1958 they were paid the same wages as men, and were gradually being employed as guards and drivers.
