Steam Train Name Plates at NRM in York

As many know, I like to spend time taking pictures in and around local parish churches in England.  One of the features of many of the churches is the placing of memorials on the walls.  Some can be 100s of years old.  At a recent trip to the National Railway Museum (NRM) in York, North Yorkshire, I was taken by this particular display of steam train name plates – are these not the same thing – memorials to those that have passed on?  I thought there were an apt link to a short series taken at the NRM.  (I did think of ‘framing out’ the steam train funnel, but then better judgement prevailed!)

(My church photographs are now posted at )
