Brass Labels & Plates

Brass plates and signs have always been  collected and cherished and come from a variety of sources. From signalboxes where they were used on the lever frames and under the block signalling instruments. 

From steam locomotives and carriages.

They look fantastic all polished up and there's something for eveybodys interest and pocket!
