THE General Superintendent of the Caledonian Railway Company spent the early years of his life in Castle-Douglas, and began his railway career at New Galloway Station. He entered the office of the general superintendent, of which he is now the head, on 11th March, 1868, and nine years later was appointed station-master at Wemyss Bay, but in November, 1882, returned to the general superintendent's office as chief clerk. On the appointment of Mr. Calthrop as head of the department in 1903, Mr. Pettigrew was made out-door assistant; and on Mr. Calthrop's promotion to the General Managership in October, 1908, Mr. Pettigrew was appointed to succeed him.
