This was univeral, but the driver and fireman were pais very little...

I personally would have resented it if I was paid nothing, but railways had men I knew; most served in WW2., the job had an helluva lot more than the clip below, a repeat I know but ....

Not sure in Americans understand the face on the driver...

that's a fit man from WW1 very good at his job... perhaps. At 59 years, the 1st link was easy, he was known to be 'steady'... the early part of the clip is like US Iraq news...

sorry to those for whom it is a repeat.
