47237 on the “DC”, 261114  

 A West coast loco was hired in for filming work on the “DC” working from Kensal Green to Watford Jn via the “DC” lines.

At Watford Jn 47237 offered the rare spectacle of a loco at  the “DC” blocks. The loco did shuttle runs from each platform to

film all routes. Whilst 47’s have worked emergency “DC” drags and engineers trains they would regain the WCML via the

surviving connection just South of Watford Jn and thus are very rare at Watford Jn’s “DC” blocks.. “Ta to “RC” for the gen.
