I'm working on a 5" gauge model of SMJ 16. I'd like to make some nameplates for this loco and I need some details to make these as realistic as possible.
Did any SMJ locos ever have nameplates ? If so does anybody have any pictures or details of these ? My current plan is to fit the plates to the sides of the smokebox. Any details about the size of these plates and the font used would be appreciated.
I am fairly certain that none of them were ever named.
Thanks for this. I might look further afield (e.g. LMS) for examples.
Just checked all the photo's of No 16 in various publications etc. None of the Beyer 0-6-0 or 2-4-0 SMJ or E&WJR Locomotives carried names. I cannot see where the Beyer Peacock plates on 16 were fitted either so I presume that they were fitted to the rear of the tender.

Yes indeed, the works plate is just above the centre axle on the outside frame. It's quite small and does look like an oval access hatch!
