Locomotive & Train Railwayana - Loco Nameplates

Locomotives were named from the earliest days and in most cases were fitted with a pair of Nameplates generally made from gunmetal/brass. Many names were used again as steam locos were scrapped and with the withdrawal of steam in the 1960's diesel and electric locos took over some of these names. 

 Locomotive Nameplates break down into four major groups - Click on the links below to view our guides for the different categories of Loco Nameplates.
