Day Log/1914-08-05

From Festipedia, hosted by the FR Heritage Group

On this day, Notice issued by the War Department that it was exercising its powers, and taking over the Railway (for the duration of hostilities?). Received by the company on 1914-08-08, along with a letter from the Railway Executive. There is some possibility that originally the FR Co. was not going to be requisitioned.[1]
