Locomotive 21C114, seen above, was renumbered 34014 in November 1948. It was rebuilt at Eastleigh, Hampshire in March 1958, having run 573,677 miles.  In its rebuilt form it completed a total of 837,477 miles before being withdrawn in March 1965,

Original loco nameplates, as they are known by railwayana enthusiasts, are highly prized and Fairlynch Museum was lucky enough to acquire this fine cast brass specimen, named after our town.


Loco nameplates are named after famous people, places, and events.
