GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY. One of the most important items in the summer train improvements this season is tho running of a non-stop express between Pad- dington and Plymouth both up and down each week-day by the Great Western Railway. The distance run without an intermediate stop is 240 miles-50 miles longer than any other non-stop run, and the journey is performed in 4 hrs. 25 mins. The Great Western has always been famous for its express trains, and these are so popular that soubriquets such as the Flying Dutchman," the "Zulu," etc., have been given to the trains by travellers and others. Mr G. A. Sekon, the editor of the "Rail- way Magazine," recognising the utility of a popular name for a famous train, is offering a money prize for the best title for the new non-stop London-Plymouth Express, and Mr J. C. Inglis, the general manager of the Groat Western Railway, has consented to award the prize to the name he considers most suitable for the new train.
