The class 47 is one of our favourite types of locomotives! They were very common in North Lincolnshire (well, very common everywhere at one time!) with a good number allocated to Immingham TMD in the nineties for petroleum traffic.
There are various options when it comes to modelling the type and various methods will feature on West Halton – Lima and Heljan will feature and a Bachmann example lurks in the workshop too.
All benefit from varying amounts of work – the Lima model especially take a lot of work to bring them up to standard, but they do make very satisfying projects and it exploits the fine tooling of the Lima body too.
