The Edmondson railway ticket was a system for recording the payment of railway fares and accounting for the revenue raised, introduced in the 1840s. It is named after its inventor, Thomas Edmondson, a trained cabinet maker, who became a station master on the Newcastle and Carlisle Railway in England. He introduced his system on the Manchester and Leeds Railway. Previously, railway companies had used handwritten tickets, as was the practice for stagecoaches, but it was laborious for a ticket clerk to write out a ticket for each passenger and long queues were common at busy stations. A faster means of issuing pre-printed tickets was needed. There was also a need to provide accountability by serial-numbering each ticket to prevent unscrupulous clerks from pocketing the fares, who now had to reconcile the takings against the serial numbers of the unsold tickets at the end of each day.The Edmondson system came into general use with the creation of the Railway Clearing House in 1842, becoming the essential standard feature.Sri Lanka is one of few countries who still use this Edmonson ticketing system. They use second hand machinery imported from Nederlands to print these tickets. Sri Lanka is a tiny island which is also a famous tropical tourist destination. Which has a railway network runs on various kinds of terrains including misty mountains, beaches & valleys. It was build by British while this island was ruled by them.
