General Information:

Cuckoo - Mrs Preston drove home the final key in the railway at Port Florence, on December 20, 1901. She had accompanied her husband all the way, sharing in his many hectic adventures, hardships and strenuous life, and seeing the thing through to its conclusion. It was only fitting that this last act in construction should have been delegated to her. .......... story of "Plain of Skulls" below the escarpment towards Naivasha, and runaway trains (p.334/5)
