About Railway Gazette Worldwide Historical Data, 1860-1930

The Railway Gazette was a weekly, worldwide railway intelligence newspaper primarily for the United Kingdom. This database is an update drawn from issues of the newspaper printed between January and June of 1927 in addition to those of January to June of 1930. This newspaper sought to illuminate railway officers and industry leaders—those employed by both railway companies and ancillary companies between 1890 and 1930. Information on individuals includes first names, surnames, dates and places of birth, dates of promotions, grades and stations or depots where the persons worked, dates and places of death, wills, honours, and society memberships. With more than 3,000 names and facts, this collection represents an insight into the leadership of British and other overseas railway companies between 1890 and 1930.
