27/06/09: 47804 leads 47826 back into Waverley station. Of the leading companies who operate 47s these days, West Coast Railways are one that haven't opted for the multiple working equipment for their fleet as their tours are planned to be top'n'tailed, though their 47245 still has the equipment from its Railfreight Distribution days.
