Thanks Charlie - we still need to connect so I can get at least that label for it that you offered me - mine is so sad looking without its nameplate ;-)

And now you have the tag and the Empire sign.   ;D

100% - I love that sign and it looks great behind my primary display in the living room!

Funny, "faux" faux governor!  Which that B33 was donate to Al by Charlie or so that page says.

I'm sure if I had the nameplate but was missing the governor I'd be whinging about that!  I think it is pretty lucky having the stack too, seems those are often missing too.  The upside I can turn it so I don't see the nameplate missing (out of sight, out of mind LOL).

I'll just have to keep my eyes open, who knows perhaps I'll find a donor and then could pass on the rest to another person that needs what left.

I did donate it to Alan and I have donated several other engines to him for restoration, including an interesting Bing Wolf engine for restoration.
