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.
