Virgin 47s in summer 2005

Sadly, this is a much shorter report than last year's as Virgin had officially phased out 47s. We were treated to the occasional working when 57s and Pendolinos were unavailable. 47 816 enjoyed a Sunday outing on 16th June

It's seen here approaching the Britannia Bridge from Anglesey

The sun caught me out here... DRS 47 501 makes a surprise showing on 17th July

Former Virgin loco 47 828, now named Joe Strummer, was hired in on Sunday 7th August
