Probably a new set of plates will be cast!

The ones on '081' where pretty shabby!

They have actually been removed from the loco as far as im aware!

But yes, i think EWS do own them

However, you know the History of locos that are named after IKB :shock: :shock:

"Ahhhh, cursed....!" *hides*

If i can, ill go down to BTM for the ceremony on Tuesday! :D

Usuall they run back-to-back on namings, a very strange sight it is when you pass by them on Cardiff to Newport or vice-versa as I did for 004's naming, after being told it wasn't due to happen for ages, so I went for a bash to Newport and saw them passing me. That was highly annoying!

I would like to go to BTM on Tuesday for this, but as it costs me about £11 for a CDR to BTM and only £9 for a SVR to New Street (much cheaper, only a couple of miles difference too!), it's not too likely. It's £6 bus fares for me too just to get to Hereford, which makes the trip very unlikely. However, never say never.

If I don't go, someone get some good shots, I'd like to put it on my desktop, where 37416 has been since 19th February!
