Lithograph by A Ducotes showing a group of men attempting to buy tickets for the Great Western Railway. The ticket seller tells them 'Gentlemen we are all full- but if you only wait for the next train we shall- I have no doubt- be able to accomodate you all with seats'. One of the gentlemen replies 'it seems there is a screw loose somewhere in their principle engine'. Published by T McLean.
