About the memorial:
The memorial is a railway engine nameplate fixed to the wall of the Great Hall of the National Railway Museum in York. The engine was named for Employees of the Great Central Railway. It is one of the two nameplates from this engine the other being in St. Barnabas' Church, Manchester (WMO Ref. 0199195).
The nameplate is irregularly shaped and is made from cast brass. The raised letters are polished and the area between the letters is painted black.
According to the IWM Register of War Memorials the engine was withdrawn from service in December 1947 and was scrapped. This name plate was sent to the York Railway Museum at that time. The NRM label attached to the plate identifies it as Acquisition No. 1975-7570.
