What's In A Name?


Four Class 67 nameplates, once used on diesel locomotives running on the Chiltern Railways line before being replaced by Class 68's, were sold at auction recently for a total of £15,000.

 
The nameplates, 'Thomas Telford', 'David J Lloyd', 'A Shropshire Lad' and 'Dyfrbont Pontcysyllte' were, according to Chiltern Railways' managing director, Rob Brighouse, "very desirable amongst collectors".

The prices realised are as follows:
A Shropshire Lad - £7,100
Thomas Telford - £3,600
Dyfrbont Pontcysyllte - £2,900
David J Lloyd - £1,400

Two charities will benefit from the nameplate sale, St. Basil's and The Brain Tumour Charity which were voted for by Chiltern Railways employees.
