Graham Farish Class 47 Diesel

One of the most prolific diesels on Britain's main lines, the Class 47 was used for all manner of tasks, from heavy freight to prime-time passenger services. Built by Brush in the 1960s, over 500 Class 47s were built. In fact, some are still in use today on the mainline.

These models are Graham Farish's Class 47, in N gauge, enhanced by YouChoos with DCC sound in the form of a CT Elektroink SL75 decoder or Zimo MX648 and modified SugarCube speaker. The factory-fit headcode and tail lights are DCC controlled and directional, plus independently controllable super-bright white cab lights are also fitted. The cab has been hand-detailed and drivers added to each end.

Like most N gauge diesels, a fair bit of milling and rework of the chassis is required to squeeze in all this gear, but the resulting loco weight is greater than the original thanks to the extra kit and some carefully padding of additional material... all the better for good running.

Thanks to Jerry Clifford for the use of his multi-award winning 2mm Fine Scale layout "Highbury Colliery" for some of the photos featured here!
