Trove Tuesday - George Brown vs. Victorian Railway Commissioners

George Brown (1849-1929), born Midlothian, Scotland, immigrated to Victoria in 1857 on the Admiral Boxer with his parents (George Brown [1817-1899] and Jemima Brown nee Crookston [c1820-1891]) and five siblings. In 1871, George married my 3 x great aunt, Mary Brown (nee Fullerton) (1851-1935). You can read more about this family on the following blog posts:
An article headline from the Gippsland Times, Monday 25 June 1906, page 3.
As part of my ongoing research into the Fullerton family I have come across the following newspaper articles via Trove referring to a 1905-1906 compensation lawsuit between George Brown, a former engine-driver for the Victorian Railways, and the Victorian Railways Commissioners. I will add more links to this list as I find and correct the text of any further articles related to this lawsuit.
Between 1919 and 1924, George Brown wrote about his time with the Victoria Railways in a series of articles published in The Footplate (newspaper of the Victorian Engine Drivers, Firemens and Cleaner’s Association). A transcription (transcribed by A.K.Peterson, May 2011) of these articles is provided as a PDF file on Mark Bau's Victorian Railways websiteEarly days in Victorian Railways by George Brown (accessed 21 May 2013).
