A smokebox numberplate, 1450, from a GWR Collett 0-4-2T built at Swindon in 1935. Originally numbered 4850, it was renumbered 1450 in November 1946. A long time Oxford engine from new often working the Abingdon branch, it moved to Slough in early BR days before returning to Oxford in the late 1950s. It finished its days in the West Country at Exeter, Taunton, St Blazey and finally Exmouth Junction from where it was withdrawn in May 1965 and acquired for preservation by the Dart Valley Railway. It has subsequently worked on the Dean Forest Railway and the Severn Valley Railway and visited Didcot Railway Centre but is currently out of use. The front repainted. (Postage Band: D)
