May 1962

In which I continue my studies at Reading University.

Friday 25 May

Went home to Orpington today.  I came up to Paddington on the "Capitals United Express" (having let the train before go because it was diesel-hauled), hauled by a Castle. It was a very good trip but was spoiled by a signal check at Westbourne Park.  I made my way to the British Transport Commission headquarters near Marylebone station to buy a Steam Locomotive Engineer's Handbook.  This will come in very handy for when I am working on the footplate in the summer.
