Railfreight Distribution Class 47s in original livery - SOLD OUT

Untitled Document

A TOTAL 110 Class 47 locomotives were painted in this scheme between 1987 and 1993 with many managing to keep their triple-grey colours to the end. Regular power for wagonload ‘Speedlink’ trains before the 1991 axe, they were so commonplace it was hard to think you’d ever miss them. This duo are ideal for a whole host of duties ranging from lightly loaded ‘backwoods’ trip workings right through to heavy trunk trains on mainlines to the north, east, south and west.

Synonymous with Sheffield’s Tinsley TMD, they gained an intriguing selection of names and were often ‘bulled-up’ with white-walled wheels and highlighted window surround for special events. Although the paintwork was to become notoriously faded towards the end their lives they put in much hard work, including the period when a number were fitted with multiple working equipment for Freightliner trains before that division was hived-off in 1995.

No. 47365 (Item V2107) will make a fitting reminder of the Jubilee celebrations. There is, however, no real link to the 2012 event having been named back in 1986 at ICI Wilton, on Teesside, to mark 60 years since the chemical giant made its first shipments by rail. In later years the loco lost its ICI badge above the nameplate. It is a typical freight machine, from the non-heat 47/3 sub class and is modelled after having had its bufferbeam fairings cut away and long range fuel tanks fitted.
