47839 1O30 BTN 24/07/01
On day 3, 24th July 2001, I travelled to Brighton, via the Ashford - Hastings route for a ride on a 'Thumper'. My next move was to Reading behind 47839 on the 1M50 1418 Brighton - Manchester Piccadilly. Diagram XC203, the loco worked in on the 1O30 0708 from Piccadilly, seen here approaching the terminus. There were 21 weekday diagrams for the 32-strong Toton-allocated fleet at the time.
