Beddru Flemming has already admitted his mistake on this one. It may be a corruption or variation of the name "Buddha" therefore perhaps Chinese or Indian in origin but that is just speculation. In an interview for the "Rational Response Squad" Flemming admits he should not have included this one: It's in a background graphic
Was the LMS too big? Frederic Stansfield In his reply to my earlier letter about the size of the LMS September issueDoug Landau November issue makes many interesting points describing the company's engineering innovations. But two of Landau's examples show how engineering developments within the LMS were subordinated to business issues.
LMS management's rejection of electrification proposals, because of insufficient return on capital, is unsurprising when neither the scheme nor the one linked London with a major city such as Birmingham.
Also, the belt repair system to which Landau refers represented the development in Britain of "scientific management" techniques.
As he indicates, this system had the business aim of reducing repair times and costs. Letter writer would agree in general with Landau's observation that the Southern Railway was the most forward looking of the 'Big Four'. However, in my previous letter I compared the LMS not with its British contemporaries but with other European railways, which received more government support.
Britain's railways, including the LMS, did receive very limited government finance in the s. Landau does not address the question 'Was the LMS too big? The company's business failure to follow-up engineering developments, such as electrification and main line diesel locomotives, would suggest the opposite.
The LMS was if anything too small to attract the money needed to implement its engineers' technical innovations. Restaurant Cars and their Development.

One voice from the floor: Hawksworth' - clearly a gathering worthy of record: In those relatively early days of electrification people naturally drew on such examples as were available: Paul were O'Brien's favourites on that occasion.
O'Brien and his audience touched on some crucial issues. O'Brien revealed, or claimed, that the Liverpool-Sandhills stretch alone ie first station out of Liverpool Exchange shared occupancy with a goods traffic "Greater than He noted that there were nine rush hours each day to cope with in this respect, including "ladies going into Liverpool to shop" On the technical side, O'Brien seemed to favour 1.
His sketch of an electric locomotive was one he employed elsewhere: The 'limitations' of the title were really snags, set against a general background favourable to electrification; for example the need to erect overhead conductors in marshalling yards, or how to counteract the track-unfriendly low centres of gravity suffered by EMUs.
Counter-intuitively, the Swindonians through either courtesy or breadth of mind. Hawksworth praised the even torque of electric motors; O'Brien responded politely that the imbalances of steam locomotives were "not a very serious defect".In a joint report issued by the Black Dog Institute and Mission Australia, it has been found that young women are twice as likely to be mentally ill as young men.
