Bachmann OO Model limited edition Class 47
Class 47 " Tamar" No. 47832 in Intercity Mainline livery
Intercity Mainline was an intermediate (unbranded) livery that was carried between the original Intercity livery and the then new Intercity Swallow livery. Only 20 Class 47s carried this livery and 47832 was one of these locomotives. When newly outshopped as a Class 47/8 with extended range fuel tanks in 1989, Intercity Mainline livery was carried with only the smaller black numbers on its cab side and it ran in this condition from 1989 until at least 1991. This is the chosen period in which the model is portrayed. Initially allocated to Crewe Diesel depot after its conversion, it soon found its way back to its former Western Region haunts, as in June 1989 it once again returned to Bristol Bath Road depot and would have been used on internal and inter-regional InterCity passenger services. 47832 has carried a variety of liveries since being built in 1964 and is still in existence today and is in use with West Coast Railways.
