The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

Class 47 diesel locomotive

Photo of a Class 47 Co-Co Diesel-Electric Locomotive.

The British Rail Class 47 (or Brush Type 4) is a diesel-electric locomotive developed in the 1960s by Brush Traction. They were either built at Crewe Works or at Brush's Falcon Works. In total 512 were built between 1962 and 1968.

Over 40 years later there are still some working on the mainline. There are quite a few photos of them on this site. Have a look at picture #5725 and picture #2995.
