Just a bit of useless information;'

I remember being hauled by 47562 in Rail blue one evening in the early '80's on a queen st-Aberdeen service which failed with a traction motor fire and was assisted by 37111 in large logo paintwork with little numbers.

I remember spotting 47510 "Fair Rosamund", in rail blue, I believe OC allocated, heading an Aberdeen-Queen St service at Broughty ferry, again early '80's but I don't know if it made it into Queen st.

Cheers
Mark

47510 would have just been transferred and allocated to HA, and was about to become 47713
Ironically, just three years later, it also caught fire, and was replaced by 47717

Sadly I am modelling the period shortly after this, where the Glasgow - Aberdeen services had swapped from Class 47/4 to 47/7
Equally, I never saw this period, my interest began just as the Class 37/4 entered service and all the 47/7 had just been completed in ScotRail livery

Although, not actually correct (accurate) as I have two blue/grey push-pull sets with one BR Blue and one Large Logo Blue 47/7
The main issue is already have two rakes of Mark 2D coaches in ScotRail livery
However, I could add one or two further rakes of Mark 2D coaches in Blue/Grey livery

now just the DBSOs I guess
There are currently two Blue / Grey and six ScotRail DBSO
Temporary due to the use of Electra Graphics
This will need to increase next year to seven ScotRail DBSO

Yes, that is part of Phase One
Just the remaining Class 47/4 locos to arrive

Phase Two has just started this week

The next three Large Logo Blue Class 47/4 were completed two weeks ago
Due to work I only managed to compare them today, and there are some minor errors /  discrepancies which may need to be resolved
Hopefully these models will be finalised by the end of November, and that will give me enough Class 47/4 to complete the layout

These two models have now been corrected, just awaiting replacement photos
All three models should be with me by the end of November

I have also agreed a small delay on the next batch, as Christmas orders take a priority and I can wait...

Two of the three Large Logo Blue
47593 now corrected



47550 still has an error, but you would only notice if you compared the model against photos!
