Nameplate SHREWSBURY CASTLE. Ex GWR 4-6-0 locomotive number 5009, built Swindon June 1927 under Lot No 234 being the 17th Castle Class built under this particular lot. Allocated new to Laira, it swapped between the West Country and the London area for many years. Final allocation in 1948 was Swindon spending the whole BR career there. Withdrawal took place in October 1960 and was cut up on home soil at Swindon Works. A lovely, ex loco plate on the front and back. The back is clearly stamped with the lot number and No 17 as well as 'R' for right-hand plate. Was in singular ownership since being purchased from BR for 37/6d in 1960.
