08/08/05 47839 at Rhymney after working 2R38 from Cardiff Central. Crew training was occuring during the week and a demand for a second 47 is expected to see two 47 hauled diagrams on these workings from Monday 15th until Thursday 18th August. It seems there is an intention to keep the 37's going though, so expect the above appearances to be short lived.
