Real Railway Tales - Geoff Body. We hope readers will enjoy these tales as much as they clearly did those in Signal Box Coming Up, Sir and Along Different Lines. Authors’ note: Sadly, Margaret Ritchie died between submitting her contribution and publication of this book. Cold relief at derby. When Philip Benham started his railway career he was told that he would ‘learn best on the job’ which proved very true, but sometimes quite uncomfortable. The transition from school to work can be quite a shock to the system.
