The National Traction Engine Trust

Photographic Evidence

When submitting a claim to DVLA for an original registration number, there should be recent photographs of the engine or wagon, and detailed legible photographs of  the engine number. However, if the primary documentary evidence which links the vehicle to the registration number is only a period photograph, (as distinct from, for example, an old style logbook) you would need to explain what unique features on the period photograph link it to the present day vehicle. It could well be the same type of engine, but is it the actual engine?

If that can’t be established, then it could well be more realistic to go down the age-related number route
