story Written 1899:-
... many folks remember, when the Maryport and Carlisle Railway terminated at Aspatria, and the porter, now deceased (rest his soul in peace!) used quite politely to show out the first-class passengers, but, coming to the third-class carriages, threw open the doors and shouted 'S'Patrick, get out!'
