George Dallas Marston (1858-1905)

1906 Obituary [1]

GEORGE DALLAS MARSTON, born on the 14th January, 1858, received his theoretical training at the Crystal Palace School of Engineering, whilst his practical experience was obtained under the late Mr. Jacomb on the London and South-Western Railway.

In 1881 he joined the engineering staff of the Great Indian Peninsula Railway at Bombay, and remained in the company’s service until the date of his death, which took place at Ingleton, Yorkshire, on the 29th August, 1905, in his forty-eighth year.

During this period he held charge of various sections of the railway and many important works; and whether as Resident or District Engineer, or Deputy Chief Engineer of the system, in which capacity he was acting when he came home on furlough, he had the full confidence and esteem of those he served and of those who worked under his guidance. In him the railway service in India has lost an indefatigable worker and an able and conscientious officer.

Mr. Marston was elected an Associate Member of the Institution on the 5th February, 1884.
