Other trains hauled by 47's are currently unknown. This was due to the overheads being isolated after an engineering over-run. The OHLE was turned on at 1300.
  • 47810 is still at Crewe, believed to be having attention to its engine due to excessive cab vibration.
  • Between working 1M87 and 1V97, 47829 was stabled oddly at Nuneaton.

    News:

  • The West Coast main line at Quintishill is now open, so last nights 1M11 2341 Glasgow-Euston sleeper service which was dragged by 47786(?) was the last diversion via the Glasgow and South Western route.
  • Tonight 1V99 was to terminate at Birmingham.
  • After a recent run of good reliability from the 47/8's, 47840 failed yesterday on 1V48, and today 47847 failed (at Crewe?) on 1V43. 87012 took 1V43 to Birmingham, where 47853 took over, two hours late.
  • Also running out of coolant forcing the engine to shut down was 47726, this time having made it to Paignton on 1V26 last night. It failed two weeks ago on 1V45 at Bristol. At least this time it nearly managed a full return trip from Birmingham to Paignton and back, only failing at Kings Norton on the return working (1S66) - just over five miles outside Birmingham! 86222 made a VERY rare appearance on the Birmingham West Surburban line to haul it into New Street just over an hour late.
  • Of the three 47's broken up for scrap at Kingsbury last month, 47125, 47297 and 47300 - all three are still there with frames bogies and engines still in place, with all the bodywork removed!
  • Nuneaton drags are OFF tomorrow, due to a show at Birminghams National Exhibition Centre, which would lead to overcrowding on the replacement bus services to Birmingham International. The drags were also cancelled on one Sunday last Summer for the same reason.

    News:

  • 1V44 0750 MP-Plymouth and 1M90 1550 Plymouth-MP on Sunday’s 16th and 23rd June should be a 47 rather than Voyagers.
  • "57301", the loco that was once 47845 County of Kent is to be named at Euston on Monday morning (17th June). As these loco's are intended to be thunderbirds, relevant thunderbird names are going to be used, ie: 'Thunderbird 1'. Chris Green infamously once said he would love to dump the 47's in the Atlantic Ocean (oddly they kept some and re-engined them), so maybe they should name 57301 "Atlantic" and then go and dump it in it.
    The activities of these non-Sulzer loco's will not be recorded here, unless they are working trains which are normally or often class 47 hauled, like 57601 mentioned on 1A34/ 1C53 - a working which has been 47's at times.
  • 47757 will again be working 1G95/ 1D67/ 1G11/ and 1D82 tomorrow.

  • 1S87 (a Voyager working) failed last night two miles north of Beattock Summit. Carstairs thunderbird 47781 rescued this, and dragged it at a maximum speed of 20mph to Carstairs where the train terminated, five hours and 20 minutes late at 0225! 47's rescuing Voyagers? Very ironic!
  • 66146 dragged 47772 north light engine at 1830 through Didcot towards Oxford.
  • Withdrawn and off for conversion at Loughborough, 47846 was hauled dead in tow on a northbound freight by 66102 - seen passing between Tamworth and Burton-on-Trent at approx 0700 this morning.
