Great Central Railwayana Auction Sale 241, Auction Lot 384
Lot 384 A worksplate, LMS BUILT 1884, ST ROLLOX. Locos built by the Caledonian Railway at St Rollox in 1884 were 171 Class 0-4-4T which became LMS 151xx, most withdrawn in the 1920s, the last in 1945, and 294 Class 0-6-0 Nos 349-54, all surviving into BR days numbered in the 572xx series. The likelihood is that this plate is from one of the six 0-6-0s built in 1884, so an early and rare plate. Cast brass, 10¼"x6", in ex loco condition. £200-350
