Worksplate Hughes Locomotive & Tramway Loughborough Engine Works Limited. Oval brass. Henry Hughes of the Falcon Works, Loughborough initially built horse-drawn tramcars and then started building tram engines in 1876. His engines were of the saddle-tank type and exhaust steam was condensed in a tank under the footplate by jets of cold water from the saddle-tank. Predecessor of the Brush Works at Loughborough, this is indeed a most rare plate.
