A smokebox door mocked up and purporting to be from Raven Q6 0-8-0 63412 adorns the wall of the entrance foyer of The Sidings Hotel and Restaurant adjacent to the ECML. The door displays a 52F Blyth shed plate, despite that loco being allocated to 51C West Hartlepool during its final years of service. The door, which is with hinges on the wrong side, appears to be from another class of loco, as the hinges do not match those in views of the class and there is not a pillar type protrusion on the centre line near the edge of the door on the opposite side to the hinges.
