I'm considering renaming a Dapol Hall using FoxMaster etched nameplates. Do the old plates come off pretty easily?

Yes, with a thin scalpel blade you can get in behind them and gently prise them off.

Cheers,

Yes, the nameplates and cab numbers come off really easily, I changed a Hall and Manor last year. The cab numbers sit in a recess and the nameplates fit on a removable backplate that is stepped to accommodate the etched plate, so a little care is needed in removing the original plates.  The recesses however, make fitting the new plates very straightforward. Hope this helps.
