    "... a nameplate....."? Only one, Tom? Most locos, even GW ones, usually have two or none at all:).

    How do you know? Have you ever seen two simultaneously? ;)

    (Just a thought - maybe certain posters could be placated by attaching Dumbledore Hall nameplates to one side of an existing hall - you’d never see both names together in any case …)

    Few questions:
    1. Where did you see it?
    2. [Risk of being shot] Getting something non-home based wise?
