31/07/1949 \"H\" Class 0-4-4T\'s Five 'H' Class 0-4-4T's, Nos. 31016, 1164, 21182, 31520 an 1523, have been fitted for pull-and-push working, to replace the 'D.3' 0-4-4T's now being withdrawn. SLS/194908
04/11/1951 Ashford Works 31523 was recently seen being pulled to pieces, even crank axles and cylinders being cut up. It was with some surprise, therefore, that 31523 emerges, yesterday, resplendent in lined black. We have been informed that she has a spare set of frames (from 1547?) and new cylinders cast at Ashford. 31735, which has been in the shed for six months, is now in the works for new cylinders, and 31505 an 31494, which have been outside the works for the whole year, have also gone in for similar attention. SLS/195201
