    If it was a genuine plate off the HST surely it would have carried a reserve. Not looked deeply into the lot having said that.

    Would have to have looked hard to see it on power car as the whole plaque is less than 4.5" long!

    That little plaque is just the right size to fit on a prison cell wall to remind the inmate of those times when he was feeling rosie :oops:

    Wish I had known, I saw this HST at Swindon in 1984 or so. I think it was 002 or at the very least, one of the first ones to enter service.

    Did he who shall not be named actually unveil this? I thought he had left Top of the Pops by then and there was no connection.

    Allegedly, there has not been a trial.
