47460 1A01 STR 22/08/88
For the final day of our Railrover, Monday 22nd August, we travelled to Stranraer Harbour. In charge of the 1A01 0823 from Glasgow Central was Inverness-allocated 47460, in full 'Scottish 47' regalia. The shot oozes atmosphere: note the backpackers on the bridge heading for the Northern Ireland ferry, the driver looking back for the Shunter's signal, and the rusty rails. On the right, and we had a tight change, is the 1M06 1105 Stranraer Harbour - Euston which was hauled by 47608. We alighted at Ayr for a 318 to Glasgow Central, heading home via the GSW to Carlisle with 47622, 85016 to Preston, and 47108 from Preston to Poulton. Such a memorable week!
47460 was cut by Booth Roe, Rotherham in April 1993.
