Monday 16th December 1940: time for hobbies

Very mild for season - 50 degs, very dull and damp. Out morning and afternoon to do shopping. In afternoon along rail path: Saw Atlantic 2321 - most unusual to see a 4-4-2 on this line: the L.S.W.R. never built any and this engine was a former Brighton design. The men are putting up thick board on the ceilings. May Pontifex called. Am rebuilding the lifting fuselage on orthodox lines and lengthening it. Warnings from 9.52 to 10.1 p.m. also 10.24 to 10.34 p.m. No incidents.
Atlantic locomotive from Brighton Works.
See Blubell Railway  for details of photo and a reconstruction project.
