    Hi all, I am changing my black 5 from "British railways" logo back to the BR late Ferret & dartboard logo, can anyone measure the length & height of this logo on a 4mm scale tender?

    Hi Andy, the "ferret and dartboard" insignia which was officially known as the Lion Rampant where an upright postured lion standing in a gold crown carried a wheel in its front paws, this motif came in two sizes large for steam locos and smaller for diesels, so your Black 5 would have the larger version applied as intended for steam locos. So you would be quite safe ordering the larger version in 4mm scale from Fox transfers.

    Hello All,

    further to York Paul's comment, the "ferret & dartboard" Lion Rampart is technically a crest, ( as in derived from a coat of arms ) whilst the "cycling lion" is an emblem,
