Worksplate Rebuilt EV 1920. A very rare Ebbw Vale Steel and Iron Coal Co. Ltd. rebuild plate removed from one of two Standard Gauge 0-4-0STs built by Peckett either No. 933 /1903 Henry Cort or Peckett 1014/1904 Waun Llwyd. Peckett No. 933 became redundant in 1954 and the then owners of Ebbw Vale Works (Richard, Thomas and Baldwins) moved it to their ironstone quarries at Blisworth in July 1957. Three years later it transferred to Irthlingborough Mine and when that operation closed on 30 September 1965 it was offered to the Foxfield Railway as the owners did not wish to see it scrapped. It was moved to Foxfield in February 1967 and today it is exhibited there out of use. No. 1014 remained at Ebbw Vale for all of its life and was scrapped there circa September 1961. Oval brass 8.25in x 6in, ex loco condition.
