James Henry Bailey (1866-1952) of the London and North Eastern Railway

1952 Obituary [1]

We have learned with regret of the death, on March 6th, of Mr. J. H. Bailey, A.M.I.C.E., who, until his retirement in 1931, was an assistant to the civil engineer of the former London and North-Eastern Railway.

Mr. Bailey was eighty-five, and began his railway service with the old Lancashire and Yorkshire Company as assistant to the resident engineer on the construction of Horwich locomotive works and the rebuilding of Liverpool Exchange station.

He joined the former Great Northern Railway in 1892, and at the railway grouping in 1923 became chief drawing-office assistant in the civil engineer's department of the L.N.E.R.
