37196, Tre, Pol and Pen

Recommended Posts

During 37196s time as "Tre, Pol and Pen" she wore Red Stripe livery, with no red stripe, at this time she also carried a white cresent shaped headboard with "Cornish Railways" and crossed BR and Cornish flags on it. My question is, did she carry the headboard at both ends? Or was a single headboard swapped from end to end?


I have found photos of both ends carrying the headboard, and the headboard on the end coupled to a wagon, but no pictures showing both ends on the same occasion.


This is going to be my first 37 I will model in N, kind of limits my time period, but she's an interesting machine!


Many Thanks,
