47152 Bromsgrove 23 September 1989

47152 takes a break from its freight duties on 23 September 1989, as it works the 1V42 07:59 Leeds to Tenby service, seen here passing Bromsgrove. The cause if the substitution was the failure of 31454, with 47152 taking over at Sheffield. At the time Class 47s were omnipresent, so this one replacing a 31 was a bit of a disappointment. However, as it was a Tinsley allocation Railfreight Distribution machine, it does at least have novelty value on a passenger train.
