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 nameplate consists of two crossed swords with a circle and a motto ribbon and is made from cast brass. The raised letters are polished and the area between the letters is painted maroon. The engine was made for the London, Midland and Scottish Railway by North British Locomotive Company, Glasgow and was completed in September 1927. It was a Royal Scot Class engine and was numbered 6127 (later B.R. 46127). The engine was withdrawn from service in December 1962 and was cut up the following year.
