Nameplate WESTWOOD HALL together with the matching cast brass Cabside Numberplate 4978. Ex GWR 4-6-0 Hall Class Locomotive built at Swindon Works in February 1930 and allocated new to Plymouth Laira. By 1948 had wandered to Old Oak and stayed in that area with a move to Southall in 1950. Further moves through the 50's saw allocations to Westbury and Taunton. Withdrawn from Severn Tunnel Junction in September 1964 and cut up at Hayes, Bridgend. The nameplate has been tenderly polished over the years and retains the original splasher paint. The cabside too has been polished over the years but has been professionally, face restored. It is stamped with class details in the top rim and boiler details in the lower rim. A wonderful set indeed.
