I'm not 100% certain, but I think it was BLZ.

Hi Bob,

The St. Blazey Shed Code was SBZ under GWR but changed to 83E under BR.

There is a very good web site called 'The Great Western Archive' which has just about all the information you are ever likely to need on the GWR. This is the link to the page on Shed Codes:-

Expat.

An aside - according to Bolger the only 14xx allocated to St Blazey in 1950 and 1959 was 1419.
