47147 Oxford 9 September 1995

47147 opens up, and blackens the sky, as it passes through Oxford station on 9 September 1995 with the 4O22 02:30 Garston to Southampton freightliner. It seems that the yellow front end has received a repaint, but the sides are a patchwork of peeling grey paint. This was certainly the day for extremely tatty 47s, as it was shortly followed by equally care worn 47361 on MoD stores.
