15th-16th Dec 1945: saw Victorian locomotive

15 Sat. Rather mild for season; dismal, rain most of day. Gwennie, Laurie & Donald called. To Wimbledon along rail path in afternoon: saw Adams 0.4.2. Jubilee engine No. 630 built at time of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee – 1897: there are not many of them left now. Met Alf & Lily.

16 Sun. Mild for season 54 degs: very dull and damp. Laurie called so did Anne who was very sweet and sat on my lap. Mrs Akroyd came to tea. Wrote letter to Uncle Tom.
