The Brush designed Class 47's were arguably the most successful of the classes introduced to replace steam, with over 500 of this Sulzer engined type built between 1962 & 1968. A true mixed traffic engine which could be found all over the BR network. The class is still in use today working both freight and passenger trains for various companies.
