Monday, 6th May 1940

Mild, very dull, rain in morning. Dug over a part of garden. Walk along part of way along rail path. Saw loco. King's Wimbledon the one I have been on the footplate; it is now fitted with 24 ins dia. chimney, and Lemaitre multi blast pipes.

Railway locomotive photo from Fed's files, probably taken by him years before this diary entry, but scrawled on the back: Between Raynes Park and Wimbledon. (Is this an 0-4-4 tank engine? Comments most welcome!)
