    Can anyone tell me where the original Olton Hall was, which GWR 5972 (now Hogwarts Castle) was named after?
    The closest I'm aware of is Oulton Hall in Leeds, which is spelt differently - but I don't know if it's actually the same as I know some nameplates were occasionally mis-spelt.

    Thanks!
