06/06/10: 47375, now with fleetnumbers, at Barrow Hill. This is a less common position for fleet-numbers on blue liveried 47s though recent examples have included 47790 and 47802 (though these have been moved to the more common lower bodyside positions since) and light Pullman blue 47709 and 47712. WCR maroon, Cotswold silver, original Intercity, Scotrail, Rail expres systems and two tone grey are examples of other liveries which had the numbers positioned here but of course all Brush Type 4s which entered traffic in two-tone green in the 1960s had fleet numbers (albeit pre-TOPS ones) located in the same position. A few of these also had TOPS numbers applied here after the D-numbers had been painted over during the renumbering of the mid 1970s, some were located elsewhere on the body to save waiting for the paint to dry... though most locos were in the process of being repainted into BR blue at the time.
