CLASS 47s: From Inverness to Penzance 1982-85
Class 47s: From Inverness to Penzance, 1982 -85 Book Britain's Railways Series: Volume 5
The Class 47 diesel locomotives were a mainstay of British Rail with 512 built in the 1960s. They were a daily sight throughout the UK, working express passenger and heavy freight trains as well as local passenger and wagon-load freight all over Britain. This book records the years 1982 to 1985 and many days spent trying to travel behind all 507 of the Class 47s that were still in traffic then. It details the triumphs and disasters faced during these travels and contains a wide variety of colour photographs, many of them previously unpublished, of Class 47s at work from Inverness to Penzance.
