47478 at Dudley Port
This photo was taken at 12:15 on Sunday 5th February 1995. 47478 is working a weekend engineer's train, and is standing "bang road" on the down main line just north of Dudley Port station, near the connection into Watery Lane loop. This was one of the later 47s to retain normal BR blue livery, albeit with the remnants of a silver roof from its days as a Stratford loco. By early 1995 it was effectively a Bescot loco, part of the LBCB departmental pool. It was taken out of traffic later in 1995, but it was 2006 before it was broken up at EMR Kingsbury.
