    Just found an old notebook of mine in which I find details of locos seen around 1974 - 75
    One of which has an asterix against it for having an unofficial name painted on the side.
    Will keep the name quiet for the moment and see if anyone else saw it but the loco was 50013 on the 1st August 1975 at Paignton.

    In the late 1960's D6320 has "Lister" on one side. This was a large crescent shaped transfer rather than name plate with red writing on a white back ground. The blemish on the side in this view is where the transfer had been.

    Reveal time.
    50013 was unofficially named WESTERN WOMBLE.

    I might just suggest that to the group at Levisham on the NYMR.
