I confess that when it was suggested to me that I might undertake a paper on the Report of the Vice-regal Commission on Irish Railways, I hesitated very much before accepting the task. It was, I felt, practically impossible to go into the question within the limits of a short paper, and I was conscious that such a paper should be prepared by a chairman or general manager of a railway company, and I am not even a director. Upon consideration, however, I felt that I was not altogether unprepared for the task. I have always taken a great interest in railways and railway management generally. I have studied them for years, and it so happens that I brought the condition of the Irish Railways before the public some thirteen years ago in various articles in the New Ireland Review.
