BRUSH TYPE 4 CLASS 47

The Class 47 Diesel Locomotive, built by Brush Traction at Crewe and Loughborough between 1962 and 1968 was a Co-Co configuration diesel-electric engine. Designed for passenger as well as freight services they were the workhorse of the BR network. Over 500 of these reliable engines were built and some saw regular service well into the 2000s. A number have survived and are preserved.
