Hi all, I wonder if anyone can tell me when (the now preserved) 30583 received the late style of BR crest. I am modifying my Hornby version to resemble it when had my first ever cab ride at the tender age of 4 in 1959. Whilst I have a smashing picture of me in the cab at Lyme Regis and another at Honiton with Mum the swirling steam obscures the crest but luckily confirms it was 30583! 
Thanks All.

Simon

There is a photo of it in Classis British Steam Locomotives, Page 45, taken in August 1954.  At this time is was still wearing the earlier logo (lion over wheel).  Not the answer you wanted but it might help to narrow down the date.

In 'The Story of the Lyme Regis Branch (Railway Bylines Centenary Special) page 19, there is a picture of 30583 taken on 23rd August, 1959, with the later logo displayed (lion over crown).


On page 28 of the same publication, there is a picture of 30583 taken on 2nd June, 1959, and again it has the later BR logo.


Hope this helps.

Thanks to all who have helped with this query, having the pics dated to August 1959 I can with confidence leave the later logo on. Very Many thanks again.
Simon.
