GDP 386 are the diaries of a train spotter. The entries are frequent and regular. Mr John-Miller recounts at the top of most entries – as a form of perfunctory subtitle – the weather for the day. He often writes in some detail about his whereabouts throughout the day and in the evening; generally spent at work or home, he often notes what entertainment he decides on in the evening or what type of evening meal he had. Through these brief details a portrait of a man is pieced together – and yet another piece of history is made.
