Yes, but by that time there had already been 40 years of railway time in
the UK. We officially switched to a single time zone in 1880, but local
mean solar time had already been given up in most places for most
practical purposes by about 1855.

DECREASING 4 OR 5, OCCASIONALLY 6 LATER IN HUMBER AND THAMES. MODERATE OR
ROUGH. RAIN THEN FAIR. GOOD.
