173 Worksplate Dick Kerr & Co Ltd London, Britannia Engineering Works Kilmarnock 1915. Worksplate Dick Kerr & Co Ltd London, Britannia Engineering Works Kilmarnock 1915. Ornate, oval brass, extremely rare indeed. Seven locos were built by this company in 1915, but it is not know whether they all had the ornate style of plate. Most of the locos went new to the WD or the Ministry of Munitions and were later sold to industry. DK also built steam trams and locos from 1883 until 1918. The only loco of 1915 definitely recorded with the ornate plates, is 2 6 gauge 0-6-2T OC No 40 on the Chatterden & Upnor Rly in Kent which of course was WD owned at that time. The earliest ornate plate recorded is of 1893, but by 1901 the plainer style of plate was utilised. There does not appear to be an actual date when plate styles were changed as they appear to be mixed up. Until 1883 the company was known as W B DICK & CO. £2200

330 Worksplate The Brush Electrical Engineering Co Ld., Falcon Engine & Car Works, Loughborough, England No 290 dated 1900. Worksplate The Brush Electrical Engineering Co Ld., Falcon Engine & Car Works, Loughborough, England No 290 dated 1900. Ex British North Borneo Railway metre gauge 4-4-0 OC (9.5 x 16 cyls) named BARON EMIL after Baron Emil Overbeck, an Austrian who was a pioneer in the colonisation of the territory. The nameplates were removed in 1914. In 1929, the loco received a new boiler and Belpaire firebox from scrapped 4-4-0 ADVANCE which had been built by Alexander Penney in 1900. Loco was bombed and damaged beyond repair in a Japanese raid in 1942. Remains of loco sold for scrap in 1954. An incredibly rare worksplate, oval brass. Note: In 1865, Henry Hughes began building horse-drawn tramcars and railway rolling stock at the Falcon Works in Loughborough. His first company was known as the Hughess Locomotive & Tramway Engine Works Ltd. He produced steam locomotives about 1867 for the Paris Exhibition. His main business, however, was tram engines, lightweight steam engines (usually with condensers) which drew passenger cars, made possible by the Tramways Act 1870. Among these was The Pioneer for the Swansea and Mumbles Railway. These were distinct from those tramcars where the boiler and mechanism was integral with the passenger car. Amongst the first steam locomotives built there was Belmont , which ran on the Snailbeach District Railways, and three 2 ft 3 in gauge 0-4-0STs for the Corris Railway supplied in 1878. The Corris locomotives are said to have been works numbers 322, 323 and 324, implying that the tram vehicles and steam locomotives were included in a single numerical sequence. In 1881 Hughes built two 3 ft gauge 0-4-0STs for the Liverpool Corporation Water Committee for use in the construction of the waterworks at Lake Vyrnwy in Wales. Late in 1882 it reformed as the Falcon Engine & Car Works Ltd. and supplied three more locomotives of the same design for the railways at Vyrnwy. In 1889 the assets were taken over by the Anglo-American Brush Electric Light Corporation and became known as the Brush Electrical Engineering Company. £4100
