Class 47

One of Britain’s more ubiquitous classes, the Class 47’s could once be found in nearly every walk of life and on every route in the UK. There are very few places these fantastically flexible engines haven’t been, but even today it’s still possible to find many of these 50 year old locomotives on the mainline.
