Looks good, it's out of my era but I like that livery, I think that suited the 47's.

Steve.

Yer your right there Steve,suites it pretty well.

Ive always enjoyed spotting this livery in the past..

That looks a lot better, and you haven't made a common mistake I have seen of rust patches on the mainly aluminium cabs! 

Yer your right there about the alloy cabs PM47079..

Ive looked over lots of my old photos of 47190 to get weathering finish I wanted here...:):good:

Im roughly up to 12 Bachmann 47 with V4 sounds,but im now fitting all of them out with Rail exclusive "chunkey twin bass speakers.

They realy sound this bizz...

Great mod,which doesn't involve milling out the chassis..

Hi,

Great weathering and updates. Just a couple of questions. 

I've used the Boom Box speakers in class 37's (They are excellent!!) but didn't realise they'd fit in the 47. Did you have to remove the fans or the fan and  casing to fit in the 47 ? I had to lose the casing and secure the fans to the grilles in the 37. 

What is your YouTube channel called ?

Thanks

Yer boom box and chunky boom box fit into Bachmann 47s Trevor.

I always remove fans to allow more sound flow through the gril mesh..

My youtube channel is Banks road.

I also have banks road fb group well worth look as there plenty sound vids...
