I had just returned from Scotland and was heading home after an overnight. I raked in two winning peds getting to Leicester for a tram home when I fell on my third winner for the morning. I did 47370 Leicester to Nottingham and back to Bedford so assume it made it to the terminus.
Sun 12/12/04: 47355 1Z59 1400 Nottingham to St Pancras which I did from Bedford.
It is possible that the 47's on ecs duties arrived on passenger and worked ecs after being shunt released.
Our St Pancras 47’3 list now stands at 50 different 47’3s on confirmed passenger workings, ,not bad for a rare sub class under that famous station roof
Thanks again to “MIB” for the gen
