(acc. no. 526)
Adopt a piece of railway history! This brass nameplate was once attached to a British Railways Standard class 6 steam locomotive, no. 72004. 'Clan MacDonald' was one of ten similar loco's (all named after Scottish Clans) built between 1951/52 and which ran mostly in Scotland.
Unsurprisingly known as 'Clans' to railway enthusiasts, amongst whom they were very popular, the class had short lifespans and the last was withdrawn in 1966. 'Clan MacDonald' was based in Glasgow and was only ten years old when withdrawn in December 1962. This nameplate was removed before the loco' was scrapped and was later kindly donated to our Museum by the Clan Donald Society.
