In beautiful winter light on December 4th, 47760 heads 5Z89 1230 Shoeburyness CSD - Acton Lane Reception Sidings ECS through Chalkwell on the LTS. The stock had worked a Southend - Salisbury charter the previous day, steam hauled west of Hanwell. 47760 was new from Crewe Works in September 1964 as D1617 to Toton. Renumbered 47036 under TOPS, it was transferred to Edinburgh Haymarket in 1977, and subsequently ETH-fitted and renumbered 47562. Named 'Sir William Burrell' in September 1983, the loco remained in Scotland through further renumbering as 47672 until 1992. It was renumbered 47760 in March 1994 and whilst with RES then EWS carried the name 'Restless' then 'Ribblehead Viaduct'. Withdrawn by EWS in 2004, it returned to traffic with WCRC in 2013.
