47847 & 47840 Fiddington 18 August 2002

47847 Railway World Magazine / Brian Morrison & 47840 North Star pass Fiddington on Sunday 18 August 2002 with the 1V84 10:03 Glasgow Central to Penzance Virgin CrossCountry service. The reason for the double heading was to work both locomotives down to West Country for the following day's final Class 47 hauled CrossCountry train - the 1M56 08:46 Penzance to Manchester Piccadilly. As Class 47/8s are not fitted for multiple working, both locos were individually crewed.
