Plenty of Thrash

Preserved Sulzer Class 47 - 47643 powers out of a tight bend on the Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway. SRPS had changed their 'Diesel Weekend' to August in 2009. This locomotive was saved from destruction whilst up in Inverness and since lovingly looked after , here seen in the old Scotrail Express livery which was once used on the London/Scotland Sleeper Service.
