I had a look for my great grandfather Henry Kane, who worked for the railway
in Glasgow from 1874 until about 1915. No sign!
Are these records complete, or are there more to come?

No, they're not complete. There is a fairly detailed explanation on Ancestry of what they have.

Hi Margp, that's a very kind offer. I'm afraid details are sketchy as we haven't really started on this branch of OH's tree, it's just what he can vaguely remember of his grandfather.

Fred Richardson, worked on the Great Eastern Railway, based in Braintree, between the First & Second World Wars, we think. He might have been a platelayer (or not) ..... His wife used to clean for the Braintree stationmaster Mr White.

I warned you it was vague! It was one of those families where people didn't talk much about the past, unfortunately.

Any info gratefully received.
