I have no idea where this plate is from, but how big is it?

If this query was moved into a section other than General Discussions it would reach many more people out there!

Its from a privately owned tank wagon, registered by the LNWR.

According to Chasewater's website here
https://chasewaterstuff.wordpress.com/t ... on-plates/
that design was introduced in 1907. I certainly haven't seen one older than that.

Mike -
Thanks for your identification of the plate, and thanks also for that fascinating Chasewater website.
Harry.

Thanks Mike.

The plate is in the estate of a late friend. His main interest had been building 5" live steam models, a couple of locos but mainly wagons. He had gathered quite an eclectic collection of railway "signs".

The plate is staying with the family but I'll ask for an option on it if it becomes available.
