28/07/77: 47356, with a bit of symmetry going on with it's former destination box, at Shipley Gate between Bennerley and Langley Mill, heading towards Toton. Of the 47s with painted out D numbers beneath the cab windows, 356 is unusual here as it's TOPS number is nearest the second-mans side cab door, rather than at the other end by the driver's door (compare with 256 image).
