BUILT CREWE 1949 (2ND br built crewe pattern)

This pattern is the second pattern of worksplate fitted by Crewe to LMS designed engines still being constructed by BR. Once again interesting as the letter style adopted is MR block face as per the Built 48 on this site and new letters have been cut as they are different to those of the 1948 plate. The pattern maker is having a good day and gives us a very nice bold builders plate that would be used during 1949 & 50. Other BR workshops like Swindon, Horwich and Brighton were forced to adopt a Burn Co style lettering (as adopted by Derby and Horwich for their WW2 LMS Built plates) for LMS designed engines being built in their works, only Derby & Crewe use this return to Midland style from 1948 to 1950.
