'Everton' loco nameplate up for auction

by   |   18/08/2019  3 Comments  [Jump to last]

I'm sure many of you who have been lucky enough to take the stadium tour or to have used the main stand at some point will have seen the 'Everton' locomotive nameplate that adorns the wall which came from the former steam engine that bore its name till it was scrapped.

Well, these locos had two nameplates, one for either side of the boiler.

The club has one in its ownership, with the second about to go to auction, so if you have a spare £20 -£25,000 you might consider buying a very special piece of sporting history — if the club doesn't decide to out-bid you all to have a matching pair!

Simon, I'd love to get my hands on a pair of matching Bristols, nothing to do with football or locomotives, though I must hasten to add. :-)

Derek,

I'm sure a pair of Bristols would be a lot cheaper than £20 grand.

Simon

Will they really get that amount at auction? Seems an awful lot. You'd get a nice classic car for that. I see Nike introduced an anniversary match ball today for £155 which isn't a bad little investment and comes with a box.

Pity nobody saved bits from the trawler 'Everton' that the Icelandics holed with a 19th Century gun during the cod wars.... might have been worth a few quid.

Can't blame Gylfi Sigurðsson, was he even born then?
