OFFICE ON A TRAIN. A new railway service, with novel accom- paniments, between Birmingham and Lon- don, is promised by the L. and N.W. Railway Company. The service is described as a City to City express. A train will start from Bir- mingharn at 8.20 a.m. and reach Broad-street at 10.85, the run taking two hours and a quarter. The up train will have a reserved compart- ment wherein will be stationed a shorthand tvpist. This young woman will take down any business correspondence which passen- gers may want to dictate, type them, and have them ready for the passenger when they send for them. If necessary, the letters will be delivered at the passengers offices in town. In this way the busy travellera by the train will be able to save much valuable time. They will also be able to take their morn- ing's post with them on the train at Bir- mingham read it over breakfast; dictate re- plies, and have this portion of the day's work finished by the time they step out of the train at Broad-street. The new service will commence on Feb- ruary 1 next.
