    Cheers, I've always wondered if the nameplate in Roys Rolls is off the loco?
    Also, was it yourself that missed the HL due to hols?

    No it wasn't Martin. Think closer to home.

    The late Dave Rawlison initially bought Hornet direct from Bersham, it was last steamed in August 1980, I purchased the loco from Dave's widow, resold it within weeks to an RSR member & subsequently got it back in part ex for the Borrows loco Windle. There were 3 Hornet nameplates with the loco, 1 original & 2 copies. The Roy's Rolls nameplate is not off Peckett Hornet
