17/10/84: 47541 'The Queen Mother' arrives at Doncaster. The design of the cars looks a lot more out-dated than the loco, which was working 1V85 0922 Newcastle to Penzance. It would be reunited with the nameplates, carried for a while by 47722, during 2002 when as 47773 it received various reliability modifications and a repaint into EWS livery. 773 (un-named) and 701 are now the only two 47/7s in two tone green and the only two to ever have carried it with a 47/7 number, 701 not being the BR version though.
