Later, he took jobs as an office boy and journalist before publishing essays and stories in the s. His first novel, The Pickwick Papers, made him a famous and popular author at the age of twenty-five. Subsequent works were published serially in periodicals and cemented his reputation as a master of colorful characterization, and as a harsh critic of social evils and corrupt institutions.

El guardavia es una obra publicada en el en la revista literaria All the Year Round. El guardavia es un relato en el que el autor Charles Dickens mezcla terror y elegancia y demuestra que pueden ir de la mano. Se trata de un cuento de terror clasico, sin variantes en la trama, aunque el verdadero talento del autor es el contraste que nos crea con la tranquilidad de pausas y llanos apacibles, y luego nos sacude con el horror psicologico que atormenta a sus personajes protagonistas. El guardavia nos cuenta la historia de un espectro que se aparece en las vias de ferrocarril, en una zona lugubre perdida en la nada, surgiendo de la boca de un tunel tenebroso, siendo portador de malas y nefastas noticias.
The railway signal-man of the title tells the narrator of an apparition that has been haunting him. Each spectral appearance precedes a tragic event on the railway on which the signalman works. The signalman's work is at a signal-box in a deep cutting near a tunnel entrance on a lonely stretch of the railway line, and he controls the movements of passing trains. When there is danger, his fellow signalmen alert him by telegraph and alarms. Three times, he receives phantom warnings of danger when his bell rings in a fashion that only he can hear. Each warning is followed by the appearance of the spectre, and then by a terrible accident. The first accident involves a terrible collision between two trains in the tunnel.
