Nameplate DOWNSIDE, ex Southern Railway 'Schools' Class 4-4-0 locomotive. Built at Eastleigh in 1933 and originally numbered 912, it became 30912 under British Railways. Allocations include Ramsgate, St Leonards and Nine Elms. Withdrawn from the latter in 1962. A nice, well balanced, shortish plate that is face polished, rear completely ex loco. It is no surprise that few Schools Class nameplates have come to market over the years. There were only 40 in the class and 40 nameplates were donated to the associated schools. Note: Downside School is near Radstock in Somerset, a short distance from the ex Somerset & Dorset Railway.
