Congratulations on your Scoop and many thanks, Gary and Doug. I was able to look at the 2006 list just after midnight and, as a Southern man, go to bed happy. Well done!

Colin Boocock's "Heyday of 70A and its locomotives" has a photo of the first rebuild, Barnstaple, new in July '57 with the late crest so I guess they all would have had it from new.
Plenty of time for Hornby to change them, fortunately.

Don't know why they changed locos, although Watersmeet is an attractive name.
Hornby also confirmed to me that the Devon Belle wingboards will be proper boards not just printed onto the deflectors, although not removable i.e they will be glued rather than clipped on.
