Class 47/7 Nos. 47727 Rebecca & 47749 Demelza (Colas Rail)Special Edition – 'Colas'
IN KEEPING WITH our unique position of having commissioned products from all the major manufacturers, and fresh from the success of the TCT Class 60 we completed the ‘full set’ once again with this Class 47 ‘twin pack’ from ViTrains. After much badgering from customers, we commissioned the pair of Colas Rail machines named after Cornish literary characters. It may be recalled that these locos were overhauled at Eastleigh Works in 2007 for the company’s rail head treatment train contract and have been a colourful sight on the railway ever since. A feature of this release was several tooling changes an impressive set of etched stainless steel nameplates incorporating not only the Rebecca and Demelza names but kickplates, worksplates and the 83H shedplates.
