HST Power car 43125 carried the name Merchant Venturer, initially as a cast nameplate and from around 6/94 the second style ‘engraved’ type plate. At a recent railwayana auction a plate in the latter style with the name Merchant Adventurer was for sale and was said to have evidence of being carried in service. If indeed the plate was carried was it on 43125 or another loco? For the former, checking of photographs taken around 6/94 might be beneficial or of course any other confirmed sighting.
