ON THE FOOTPLATE I ALLEGED BOGUS INSPECTOR I I At Leeds yesterday the stransre adventuroo of a. man travelling on railway engines and posing as a. locomotive inepeotor were un- folded in the case of John Henry Richardson, who pleaded guilty to travelling on the rail- way, with intent to defraud. Accused was on Tuesday night seen by a detective of the London and North-Western Railway at the J.tmdon.roa.d Station, Man- chester. Ho went up to an engine driver an.l demanded to he Itkc-n on the locomotive, but the driver refused, and Richardson got in with the guard and journeyed to Stockport, He there alighted and afterwards mounted the engine of a midnight train to Hudders- field. telling the driver tba.t he was an in spector from the locomotive works at Crewe. He left at Huddt rsfield and remained on the platform until 2.10 a.m., when he got on to the engine of another train and rode to Leeds. He was accosted by the inspector who had been shadowing him from Manchester. Richardson repeated to him that he was a locomotive inspector, but he had left his passes at home. At the police-station he said, "The game is up. I will tell the truth. Detective-sergeant Dnun said that on the strength of prisoner's statement that he was an inspector on the line the station master at Stalbridge had lent the man a sovereign, and a. barmaid at the game station had lent him 10b. At Buxton he borrowed a mackintosh I from the locomotive foreman, and sold it in Manchester for 10a. Witness believed that the man wa.4 wanted by the Great Eastern. The <a"'C was adjourned. It is alleged that accused took every ad- vantage of his assumed name to view the sights of the country free of charge, and to I become cognisant of the inner workings of the company. He has travelled from Liver- pool and Manchester to London and back on the footplates of engines, and several drivers ¡ have been completely taken aback at the extraordinary knowledge the man possessed of engineering. On one occasion (says a. Orewe correspondent) he brought the driver of a laondon express off his engine and ordered him to examine several intricate parts of the locomotive before allowing it to proceed. On another occasion he threatened to discharge a driver because his engine was not spotlessly clean. He has also ordered dri rers to pull certain parts of their engines to pieces in order to satisfy his wonderful curiosity.
