Hi

I think I've got some colour shots - but it will take a while to trace them. If I have any luck I'll let you know.

Alberta - as far as I am aware all the Nelsons carried the late crest on withdrawal - so no worries there. Your biggest problem could be deciding which one you want.

Well i have been looking in a book called Steam works & i have found a picture of 30856 Lord St Vincent & it looks stunning in ex works fully lined late crest. the lining on the loco really makes the model stand out & the more i think of it the more i look forward to reciving the loco back in the coming months.

According to Peter Swift in Maunsell 4-6-0 Lord Nelson class
"From March 1957, twelve Lord Nelson tenders received the large second BR totem. This was applied with the heraldically incorrect right-facing lion on the right-side of the tenders until November 1958, then with left facing lions on both sides subsequently. At the time of leaving works, the four tenders which did not receive the the second totem were coupled to 30858, 30861,30864 and 30865. A tender exchange between no 30853 and 30861 in August 1959 saw 30853 revert to the first totem until withdrawl whilst 30861 carried a right facing second totem on the right side of the tender until December 1959. The locomotive then received a General Overhaul and left facing totems were placed on both sides of the tender.
At the time of withdrawl NOS 30853, 30858, 30864 and 30865 had the first version totem on the tender."

Alberta I hope this helps you make a prototypical choice.
The same book has colour photographs of 30852(p23),30850(p30),30851(p34),30854(p43)(p47),30855(p50),30856(p51)
30857(p54 + 55),30859(p67),30861(p79) all with the later crest.

Dear alberta,

John Clements has given you a very good answer to your question.

If you are still looking for a photo of a specific LN in a specific year, to complete your model, please contact me directly. I can post your question on the the Yahoo! Group SEmG (1,100 members), which owns the website http://www.semgonline.com/ and see if they can come up with the photo you need.

Or you can just join the group and ask yourself. Just click on the "Join" button on the website.
