BR(S) Cast iron
SMOKEBOX NUMBERPLATE from Bulleid Pacific "MANSTON".
The Loco, as 21C170, emerged from Brighton Works in
November 1947 and thus became the last locomotive to
be built on the SR before Nationalisation. Initially
allocated to Ramsgate then Stewarts Lane, Ashford
and Exmouth Junction from where it was withdrawn in
July 1964 and sent to Barry. It was rescued from
Barry in 1983 and is currently located at Swanage.
The Smokebox number offered is its original BR plate
which was cut down to fit around the top lamp
bracket and subsequently broke across the centre due
to the removal of part of the top flange. Repaired
with a bit of scrap from the Works it was carried
until withdrawal in 1964. Unrestored condition.
