The highlight from the collection is this Manchester City nameplate from the London & North Eastern Railway Footballer B17/4 class locomotive number 2871.

A number of these locomotives, named after football clubs, were designed by Sir Nigel Gresley and introduced in the 1930s by the LNER.

The auctioneers expect it to make in the region of £30,000-40,000.
