Class 47 No. 47114 Freightlinerbulk in two-tone green

Limited Edition No. 3

THERE’S NO SHORTAGE of Class 47 celebrities but this former Class 48 machine caused a bit of stir when it appeared in two-tone green during 1997. It was named Freightlinerbulk to mark the opening of the new Thames Freightliner terminal in May, at the same time promoting the company’s credentials for moving bulk commodities by ISO tank containers. In preparation for the event, the loco had been repainted at Crewe Diesel depot into a ‘heritage’ inspired two-tone green livery incorporating the italicised Freightliner name and red triangular graphic.
