Around midday on 4 January 1975, TGR's pin-up 'X' class X16 was shunting the New (south) Yard but was captured working a wagon transfer from New to Old yards past Devonport's station building. X16 was specially painted and lined for display at the 1951 "Festival of Britain" in south London. The loco was subsequently 'named' by fitting commemorative "Festival of Britain" plates to the each cabside plus a small plate on the cab front explaining what it was all about.
