Nameplate ASTLEY HALL. Ex GWR Hall Class Locomotive numbered 4903 built Swindon in December 1928 and allocated new to Penzance. Moved to Oxford before nationalisation and remained there right up until the early 1960's. Short spells at Taunton, Reading and Oxley saw the final destination of Worcester from where withdrawal took place in October 1964. A wonderful, early plate with original splasher paint and No 3 stamped in rear along with Swindon and the Lot No., this was before Swindon actually stamped the Hall number. The Vendor was 14 years of age when his Father, a railway employee, acquired the plate and gave it to him as a gift. Note: Astley Hall is near Stourport-on-Severn and was the birthplace of three times Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin.
