Class 57

Giving a new lease of life to a small fleet of ageing Class 47s, the Class 57s have become a familiar sight on many UK railway locations.


Working the Summer Saturday 2E75 special from Plymouth to Exeter St Davids is First Great Western Class 57, 57604 ‘Pendennis Castle’, adorned in the legendary lined Brunswick Green of the Great Western Railway, and also hauled a selection of refurbished and un-refurbished stock from the Night Riviera Sleeper.
