Train reporting numbers were used to identify trains in the internal working timetable. These contained one or more letters or numbers either to uniquely identify a particular train, or to denote its route (particularly on busier lines). The reporting number was displayed on the front of the loco along with the lamp headcode. This happened usually with special trains or other unusual trains (e.g. summer Saturday excursions), to allow signallers to identify unfamiliar trains and route them correctly. This code was sometimes either chalked on to the locomotive front or pasted as paper characters on to a headcode disc.

From the early 1880s Great Eastern tank locomotives working in the London area were fitted with brackets to display a destination board for the information of passengers. These boards were of wood and were carried on brackets on the smokebox door. The boards were originally black with white lettering, and double-sided with related destinations: LIVERPOOL ST / ENFIELD TOWN, or CHINGFORD / LIVERPOOL ST, for example. The boards continued in use throughout the LNER period (being synonymous with the ‘Jazz’ suburban services in 1920s) and well into the British Railway Period. During the British Railways period the boards were painted black with straw yellow lettering.


These destination boards were only used on suburban trains in the greater London area (and later some workings around Norwich), and therefore only locally based passenger tank engines were fitted with the necessary brackets. However, boards were also used on some excursion trains to destinations such as Clacton or Southend-on Sea and were displayed by tender engines.


The pack comes with a variety of destinations for the London suburbs (including Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street terminus stations) as well as a small number of East Anglian ones. Each A6 pack contains 100 boards printed on 240 /gms photo card together with thin wire. The pack comes with full instructions
