    29/11/14: Bolton, 2Z12 1247 Buckshaw Parkway to Manchester Victoria. Something that hadn't happened before November 2014 was a Northern Belle liveried 47 working normal(ish) passenger trains, though 47790 has now worked 14 journeys on the additional services being run by Northern on Saturdays to Manchester. Seven of these workings were on this date, with 47818 on the other end for northbound services.

    06/12/14: 47818 arriving at Buckshaw Parkway to form the 1247 to Manchester Victoria. Prior to these Northern additional services there had never been a loco hauled train stop at this station, including charter trains, which opened in 2011. The 'down' platform for the former Royal Ordnance Factory was in the green area on the far left in this photo.

    06/12/14: 47853, Salford Central, 1352 MCV-PRE. Overhead wires are now in place in the background running out of Manchester Victoria towards Ordsall Junction (thus avoiding Salford Central station) for class 319s to operate the service from Victoria to Liverpool in 2015.

    06/12/14: 47853 in the evening at Manchester Victoria. This diagram, which saw the 47s working between 0835 and 2312 each Saturday must be the most intensive passenger diagram 47s have worked since the Tall Ships event (Hartlepool) of 2010 though that event saw a 47 on one end and a 57/0 on the end of two separate sets.
