Hand bill - Request to High Bailiff for Public Meeting. Railway. - 19.11.1833.
Poor quality. I'll see if I can get hold of a higher resolution version.

The referenced "Cambrian Railway" is clearly not the one we're all familiar with! After a bit of digging, I suspect it is the very obscure (and obviously never built) Cambrian, Gloucester and London Railway, mentioned in the bottom right corner of this newspaper dated 5 October 1833: http://newspapers.library.wales/view/3631230/3631233

The "London Rail Road" is more trivial, fairly obviously being the London and Birmingham.
