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
