Profile Of The Class 47s - OPC
- Profile Of The 47s
- British Rail's Class 47 Co-Co diesel electric locomotives could, until recently, be seen throughout the UK rail network on a wide variety of duties. Introduced in 1962 and known as the Brush/Sulzer Type 4, production continued until 1968. A total of 512 were built, making the 47s the most numerous main line type on BR.
- Many detail changes have been made to various members of the class, resulting in sub classifications into parts 47/0, 47/3, 47/4, 47/7 and 47/9. Also many livery variations, namings and re-namings have added interest to the class which has a large following among modern traction enthusiasts.
- Although withdrawals had taken place by 1987, a programme of refurbishment has ensured the majority of the 47s had a long and useful life ahead of them.
