The Power of the Class 47
The British Rail class 47's were built by Brush Traction between 1962 and 1968. A total of 512 locomotives were constructed making them the largest class of British mainline diesel.
Once a familiar site on many parts of the British Rail network, the early 00s saw a rapid decline in their numbers as a combination of new electric and diesel units took over passenger work and the class 66 their freight duties.
