This Furness Railway loco no. 3, was built in 1846 and was designed by Edward Bury, whose engines were popular with the early railway companies because they were cheap. It is the only survivor in the United Kingdom of this type. It is seen here in its current home, the National Railway Museum at York. The loco is called Coppernob, because of its prominent domed copper firebox cover. It was retired in 1898 and displayed at Barrow-in-Furness station. You can see some large dents in the copper dome caused by bomb debris during the Second World War. In February 2007, some creep stole one of its nameplates whilst in the Museum and it hasn't been seen since. The plate would be unsalable, except for the black market. As a result, the other plate was removed for safe keeping. You can see the wooden backing plate where the plate should be.
