  • 47004/D1524 is now out of service at the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Railway, it has had the batteries it was fitted with removed for use on another loco. When it arrived at the railway it was expected to have steam heating restored, making it useful for Santa Special trains but this has not occurred during its time there, the E&BA website says this 'has needed far more work than anticipated'.

    Advert - CLASS 47 DATA FILE PART 2 - D1520-D1549   The 47401 Project, owners of 47401 (D1500) and D1516 (47417) are relaunching this series this month with a never before released volume, featuring the Eastern Region, vacuum braked, Brush built locos otherwise known as D1520 to D1549 (TOPS numbers 47001-47016 and 47421-47434). Following the format of earlier volumes (but now with a striking full colour cover! featuring 47007 as above) the book tells the story of each locomotive in the batch with details of liveries, modifications, allocations, withdrawal and disposal. We have managed to include a photo of every loco in the batch with its pre-TOPS number, and there are plenty of never before, or rarely, published pictures. The book is a valuable tool for modellers, enthusiasts and historians of the Class and you will indeed be hard pressed to find all this information anywhere else.   The original co-authors Richard Levett and Peter Jaques have been joined by Ian McLean and Nigel Antolic who have added a great deal to the original research, and who are keen to press on and complete the remaining volumes of the series. Part 6 of the series, featuring 'Series Parallel' locomotives D1682-D1714 (47096-47124) is already being prepared for release after this issue.   Proceeds from the sales of this book will go towards the upkeep of the pioneer of the Class, 47401, and will help with the continued thorough restoration of classmate D1516 at the Midland Railway, Butterley. It should be remembered that 47417 has not worked since 1991, with the railways then still under the stewardship of BR. Once the restoration of the locomotive is complete it will be some 20 years since it was last ran.   The book is now at the printers, and is available to order. Price 9.99 + 2 P&P for 72 pages including around 100 photos! The book can be ordered directly through the 47401 Project website - see their Book Sales page - or by cheque/PO payable to '47401 Project' and sent to 21 The Oaklands, Droitwich, WR9 8AD.

  • Updates; archive pages - created using the Blogspot news pages have been monthly archive pages for October, November and December 2009. January-December 2009 archive pages have had links at the top added to the relevant loco log and also photo pages (January 2009 and February 2009 news pages are new, added following the unsuccessful experiment of using a different format on the news page during that time period last year). Links to ALL of the monthly archive news are on the Archive News Index. Links to ALL of the photo pages are on this site's Index Page.
  • Future Workings - Nick Scott has updated his Sulzer future workings listings, the class 47 one can be found as usual by clicking here (permanent link to this page in the links on the right hand side of this page). Also updated is the non-47 Sulzer listings which can be found on the same page and clicking a link in the dark blue box.
  • Fleet list; will be updated within the next few days once a few facts are run past some informed sources.
  • Volunteer(s) required; someone with a fascination of statistics (well, that's all of us I suppose) to go through the 2009 workings pages and compile lists of all of the preserved workings. You may have noticed the Preserved 47 page doesn't get updated very often - generally down to a lack of confirmed reports from preserved railways etc. Email sulzerpower@yahoo.co.uk if you're interested in this, no knowledge of HTML is required, just someone who might find it interesting to copy and paste into a word document or an email and perhaps correct any of the information that can be seen on the archive pages.
  • Website; just some information - Crumb is in charge entirely of the 1985-1999 archive workings pages (email rjrooker@hotmail.com to contribute any archive sightings/moves etc), Shaun C is in charge entirely of all photographic pages and the 2000-2010 archive pages (email sulzerpower@yahoo.co.uk to contribute archive [1963-2002] and current photography). Both editors are in charge of the current news page, news emails should normally be sent to sulzerpower@yahoo.co.uk though information that is 'time critical' that you wish to share with others can be sent to the Brush47 email group. If you're already a member just send an email about current workings to brush47@yahoogroups.com
