25/01/09: 47292 seen outside at Ruddington, though it is currently in the main shed having work undertaken to restore its dual braking capabilities. The photo above shows progress on the repaint as at 25th January 2009. Much of the roof is in primer whilst the sides and cabs are fully rubbed down and as flat as possible. The bodywork is apparently in remarkably good condition given it stood for three and a half years in Basford Hall and a fair part of that adjacent to a virtual quarry!

15/01/09: 47375 stands at Exeter St Davids with 0Z47 0800 Taunton to Meldon Quarry, it was routed into St Davids station rather than Riverside yard, presumably to await a pilotman to conduct the driver to Meldon and left St Davids two hours late.

16/01/09: 47813 arrived at Colchester from Norwich at 1300 on Friday, much later than the scheduled arrival time as it should leave Norwich Crown Point direct for Colchester at 0451! This working regularly goes unreported so it is often unconfirmed whether the loco even leaves the depot in the morning despite being allocated to the move.

A comparison shot of 47712 (with yesterdays image compared with one from summer 2008), showing the number two end in both cases) to point out that it has received the green circle class 47 multiple working socket and had the old distinctive RCH cables removed.

04/01/09: 47703 at Leeming Bar with the 1205 departure. On this occasion it would only take power from one end, so its single trip had to be top'n'tail with 47715.
