The Class 47 diesel locomotive was a mainstay of British Rail, with 512 built in the 1960s. For rail enthusiasts, 'bashing'emerged asthe art of trying to ride behind as many locos as possible.
However, as time passed and other classes of locomotive fell by the wayside, a far greater appreciation of them is now the norm.This book records 1982 to 1985 and many days spent trying to travel behind all 507 of the Class 47s that were still in traffic at that time. There were triumphsand disastersin the course of these travels, but you got to go the length and breadth of the country and the book contains a wide variety of colour photographs of Class 47s at work from Inverness to Penzance.
