 The Historical Bit 

School runs, services provided to get students to and from their schools, were a regular occurrence in the division. School buses either did not exist or the roads were in such poor condition that bus travel was not practical. In an era where gender segregated schools or classes were much more common than they are today, separate carriages were provided for the boys and for the girls and sometimes even segregated trains were run. In addition, it was not always possible to co-ordinate the train services with the school hours so some students would have to leave school at midday to catch the only available service back home that day.
