47323 Rover Group Quality Assured Nameplate 23 February 1994

47323 was named Rover Group Quality Assured at the Rover car plant in Swindon on 23 February 1994. The nameplate is pictured here, along with the subsidiary Land Rover and Rover plates, moments after it was unveiled by Rover employee Wilf Rayner. The naming was to mark the signing of a new five year contract to move Rover cars by rail. Unfortunately, 47323 didn't manage to hang on to the name for that long! The plates were removed in July 1996, and later applied to 47236.
