16th October 1943: 'wonderful' train washer
16 Sat. Cool, dull morning, some autumnal sunshine in afternoon. Did the usual shopping then bicycled to Morden, Merton and Wimbledon in search of food for Dinky. Saw the Southern Railways carriage washing machine at Durnsford Road bridge in operation - wonderful; trains go in dirty at one and and come out clean at the other! Met Harold. Received birthday card, letter and a nice tie from Uncle Tom and Aunt Nellie.
