Lot 4 Cast Brass Locomotive Worksplate "LMS BUILT 1933 CREWE" in original condition as carried by a Stanier large Mogul 5MT 2-6-0 No 42963. Plates from these locomotives are rare, this example coming direct from a gentleman who acquired it from BR. The loco entered service in December 1933 as No 13263 later becoming 2963 and then BR 42963 in 1948. It was variously shedded at Aston, Crewe North and finally at Wigan Springs Branch from where it was withdrawn in July 66, the loco was cut up by Drapers of Hull in Jan 67. The silver finish on the rear of the plate is a form of anti-corrosive paint tried at one point by the LMS and occasionally seen on Crewe Plates.
