Class 47s

Four pics, all featuring class 47 locos, comprise today's post (22nd November 2010).
The first two pics are both from Bob McClellan. Number one features XP64 liveried class 47, 47853 Rail Express, heading Virgin passenger stock through Winwick Junction. The pic is dated 14th August 2005.
Bob's second shot was taken at Winwick on the following day, 15th August 2005. Pictured is First Great Western liveried class 47, 47811, heading Virgin coaches on a Manchester - Holyhead working.
Andy Appleton had supplied pic number three. Taken at Winwick on 27th October 2006, Riviera Trains liveried class 47, 47848 Titan Star, is shown on a Sandbach - Sellafield working.
The final shot is by Bevan Price. DRS liveried class 47, 47501, is shown at Winwick dragging Fastline liveried class 66, 66304, southbound to Crewe. Bevan adds "66304 was stranded at Carlise when Fastline ceased trading earlier this year and had been stored at the DRS depot for several months. It was towed to Crewe to join other Fastline class 66s (66301/02/03/05) and has since been moved to Longport for overhaul".
