QUEEN'S FIRST RAILWAY JOURNEY. Queen Victoria (says the Penny Magazine) took her firt trip by railway on June 13, 1842, and not before Prince Albert had already made several trial trips, on one occasion expostulating with the engine driver "Not quite so fast another time, if you please," fast" being considerably under 20 miles an hour. The eventful day on which the Queen took her first railway journey, the engine was driven by Dan Gooch, afterwards known as Sir Daniel Gooch, add, in an interesting diary published after his death, the famous engineer wrote: In nearly all cases I took charge of the engine myself when the Queen travelled, and I have been so fortunate as never to have a single delay with her, and she has travelled undet my care a good many miles."
