    The locomotive seen here is the Southern Railways Battle of Britain class engine Number 34051, named "Winston Churchill".

    Note that the loco is called "Winston Churchill", not "Sir Winston Churchill" as listed in the title, so perhaps you could alter that.

    The plaque seen below the loco's nameplate shows the heraldic coat of arms of Churchill, bearing the family';s motto "Fiel Pero Desdichado", meaning "Faithful though Unfortunate".
