Cling­ing on to the end

Model Rail (UK) - - Opening the box -

Got an old Lima Class 47 that you don’t know what to do with? Why not recre­ate the mor­tal re­mains of 47738? This ‘Duff’ was scrapped in 2003 but its No. 2 end was re­tained, re­stored (in­clud­ing be­ing given a coat of EWS ma­roon) and mounted on a bo­gie for use in the Rail In­ci­dent Sup­port Cen­tre, Ply­mouth. With the RISC due to be de­mol­ished, 47738’s cab is to move to the South Wales Loco Cab Preser­va­tion Group’s head­quar­ters at Brid­gend, al­beit mi­nus its bo­gie.
