* These clocks have become very sought after in recent years. When British Rail was founded in 1948, most of the Railway Clocks were collected up from around the country and sent to their workshops in Doncaster. Dials, movements and cases we inter-changed to produce as many good, working clocks as possible. They were then numbered, had their dials re-written and then re-distributed across the country. Fortunately, this little example has kept all of its original components making it very collectable. The original number '16161' is still clearly marked on the back of the dial and can be traced back to the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. Around 1948 it was re-assigned to British Rail, North Eastern Region: B.R.(N.E) and given the new number of '18713'. Eventually, it was sold off and the dial signing removed however, the photographs show that the shadow of them remained. They have now been re-applied.
