Not 47547, which went quite a few years ago now and in NSE livery. Looks like 47847.

47503

Do you have details of where and when this photo was taken. I am a member of the Class 47 Preservation Project which now owns the loco (as 47771) and I am compiling a bit of a "47771 This is Your Life" so any info on what the loco has done etc is always welcome.

 

Best wishes

As a trainspotter in Kent, 47s were exotic. Two in a day was exceptional. Here's some from the mid-80s from the south.

One regular was the Dover-Willesden freight, usually ferry wagons, but here imported cars, at Rochester:

Another regular was the Westbury-Hothfield (near Ashford) aggregates. The return empties here at Maidstone East:

post-6971-0-11096400-1381418744.jpg

They spent a while on the Westbury-Allington run, so theoretically, you could have seen one at each Maidstone station some days.

 

And just N of the Thames, more aggregates, the "Tilbury Roadstone" PGAs at Stratford. Can't remember where they ran to:
