What Our Customers Think

  • 'Zanzibar', yet another beautifully crafted plate by Steve. I've been a loyal and happy customer of Newton Replicas since circa 1990. Sadly, I'm running out of wall space to purchase many more. Thank you, Steve and Emily

  • Two more 5***** Star plus plates by Steve: H2 32424 BEACHY HEAD & D19 62684 WIZARD of the MOOR.

    32424 Beachy Head. I photographed this loco at Bournemouth Shed in 1955, it was the only H2 I ever saw.
    The engine was allocated to 75A Brighton in 1955.

    62684 Wizard of the Moor (name from the book by Henry Gott) allocated to Glasgow Eastfield in 1955 and was the only D19 I ever saw.
    Seen at Glasgow Central whilst on holiday in 1955.
    The name was PAINTED on the splashers however, Steve has manage to make up a proper name plate based on D19 62660 Butler-Henderson.
    Does this make the Wizard of the Moor plate original or a unique name plate?
    I am of the opinion this is original and unique although, 67 years late.
    D19s: Some of the class had proper name plates and others in the class only had painted names on the splashers.

    Two GREAT plates by Steve with all the paper work sorted out by Emily.
    Thank you

  • 45610 Gold Coast. As a young 10 year old in 1953 I learnt much geography and history from locomotive names.
    Gold Coast always seemed such a romantic name to me. However with independence on 06 March 1957 The Gold Coast became Ghana.
    The official loco name change took place at Euston in December 1958 by the first High Commissioner Sir Edward O. Asafo Aojaye.

    45524 Blackpool. Great name for a great Lancashire town the gave pleasure to many hundreds of thousands of people in its heydays.
    In the summer trains arrived in Blackpool every few minutes.

    Both locomotives spotted at Euston in 1957.
    Steve has worked wonders on producing these plates to bring back the memories for me.

  • 60529 Pearl Diver. I saw this locomotive when I was 12 years old at Durham in the summer of 1955.
    This was my first named loco of BR Eastern Region.
    A lovely plate and quite long, beautifully finished by Steve with a pale blue background.
    Very inspirational to name locomotives after famous racing horses.
    Once again for me, great memories for me of BR in the North East.

  • My earliest memories of steam are Great Central D11 Directors on Manchester Central to Chester Northgate trains in the late 1950s.Namers made an impression then and in particular 62662 Prince of Wales. Newton Replicas have made me a replica nameplate with which I am thrilled. It cements the schoolboy memory.

  • Channel Islands Boat Train (non standard headboard made at Eastleigh Works in the late 1950s.
    With just a picture and some rough dimensions Steve worked his magic and produce a perfect reproduction for me.
    Steve's talents are amazing.
    A 5*****+ board.
    The CIBT ran in the late 1950s and early 1960s, from Weymouth Quay to Waterloo non stop with just a water stop at Southampton.
    The usual motive power was a West Counter or Battle of Britain loco.
    Great memories.

  • 45606 Falkland Islands
    Another masterpiece made by Steve.
    I was fortunate to visit the islands in 2001 and saw many things relating the the war in 1982.
    I was very humbled by the British War Memorial.
    Great memories of the islands and the locomotive.

  • Purchased a replica Class 86 nameplate from Newton Replicas, very nice finish and superior casting quality. Having had to restore plates made by other foundries I can say from experience Newton are the way to go.

  • I have “Queen Elizabeth” (Coronation class) and the nameplates and smoke box number plates for 34066 “Spitfire” and 34001 “Exeter” (with class scroll), and they are all fabulous. Some time after collection, Steve realised that the number 6 he had used was the wrong style, and offered to recast and replace the plate. He worked closely with me to get “Spitfire” absolutely right, and took care to check the dimensions of “Exeter” against the copy of the original Eastleigh drawing I supplied. The results speak for themselves, and bring a smile to my face every time I see them on my walls. The man is a proper craftsman, and I feel a “King Arthur” class plate coming on soon ..... Thoroughly recommended.


  • 45519 Lady Godiva
    Yet another masterpiece created by Steve.
    As a young train spotter, in 1953, on my way to visit my uncle in Stockport and travelling on The Pine Express 45519 Lady Godiva was the first BR Midland named loco I spotted at Birmingham New Street.
    Super good 5* plate and Super good memories.
    What a great team at Newtons.

  • I purchased a Warship Class train plate for my Husband's Birthday, It arrived in perfect condition due to the numerous layers of protective wrapping. The craftmanship and finish was excellent, a gift for life. I would highly recommend this company to other's.


  • The Pines Express headboard.
    A train I often saw leaving Bournemouth West, Bournemouth on its journey north via the S&D.
    A Black 5 with 10 red carriages.
    The board brings back great memories.
    Well done Steve
