Class 47

The Class 47 was without doubt the flagship diesel produced by Graham Farish in Poole, with a total of nineteen liveries being released (and that’s not counting 47 378 in Railfreight Grey, which was never released, but of which a handful exist). First released in 1981, early models such as Lady Diana Spencer in BR Blue Large Logo came with working lights. This wasn’t to be repeated in subsequent models, however. Early chassis were also blackened. The last release for the class 47 was in 2000 (Virgin) and so given the length of production, and number of liveries, these were perhaps the most produced diesel by Graham Farish. Special Editions were Lady Godiva (Waterman), 47 744 (EWS), Totnes Castle (Virgin) and 47 817 (Porterbrook).
