04/08/06: It's been a while since it's been possible to photograph pairs of 47's storming along the WCML in pairs on freight trains, but here in 'multi' are 47839 and 47815 at Easenhall north of Rugby working 4S45 1830 Daventry-Mossend.

04/08/06: A first for this website I think, it's very unusual to receive photo's of DRS 47's hauling their own class 20's, normally a 37 or more 20's are used - this is 47802 at Crewe at 11.49 heading south, possibly to Basford Hall with 20307, 312 and 313.
