20th August 2016

The veteran Class 47's still do sterling work on the UK national network, and although most are not in frontline service, many are still used on stock moves, and day charters. Saturday 20th August returned for former Cross Country Class 47's back to their former South West stomping ground. Nenta Railtours operated 'The Plymouth Invader' charter from Norwich to Plymouth. Sadly Class 47 No.47851 failed shortly after leaving Norwich, so classmate No.47854 'Diamond Jubilee' was sent to the front of the train. The pair are seen passing Creech St Michael hauling the 1Z68 04:50 Norwich to Plymouth
