Looking resplendent in all-over BR Blue, GB Railfreight No. 47749 "City of Truro" is seen stabled in Tonbridge West Yard. The lathe at Hitachi's Ashford Depot was under repair at this time, so any wheel turning for Class 395 units involved a trip to North Pole Depot. No. 47749 was on call to drag Class 395 units between Ashford and North Pole, and was fitted with compatible couplings for the occasion. © Wayne Walsh
