Class 47 Crewe Works 22/9/79

47496 is in the process of being converted to one of the push pull 47/7s for use between Glasgow and Edinburgh. This loco was nearing the end of its refurbishment and was to re emerge as 47710 Sir Walter Scott. The event was Crewe works open day and we had arrived at Crewe in style behind 50008 via the Crewe Invader railtour.
