Weird, seems that a gallery won't format properly immediately after an indented paragraph, even though it's OK in preview mode.

Am I right to think that 5051 carried a somewhat mis-spelt nameplate? The accepted name I can find for the actual castle is "Dryslwyn", but the name plate (at least in preservation) does seem to show "Drysllwyn", which most railway sites agree with. I wouldn't put it past the GWRGreat Western Railway to have done it, as they weren't always the best with Welsh names... --Danny252 (talk)

The Great Western Archive confirms it was originally built as Drysllwyn Castle. Welsh and typing don't feature on my list of strong points, maybe the same was true of the GWRGreat Western Railway. --Robin (talk) 18:57, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
