Editor’s Comments This is another scanned electronic version of an original booklet that I purchased on a Bid Or Buy auction to add to the archive section of the SAR Connecta Railway Museum. The Railway Service as a Career was originally put out by the South African Railways in 1948, and is a really fascinating look at the very diverse employment opportunities the administration had to offer shortly after the Second World War. The DRISA (Digital Rail Images of South Africa) Project website is live on the following link www.drisa.co.za and their latest newsletter (January 2017) is available for pdf download on http://drisa.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/2017_01_newsletter.pdf Enjoy the read!
