Update 200. 47773, 47580 & 47839 at Acocks Green, 01/10/09

I was there to see 6Z48 Burton to Dollands Moor, hauled by 47839. Looking in the distance I saw the front of a 47 approaching, with another 47 behind it. This wasn’t the freight, it was a light-engine working from Tyseley to Hatton & return – something I wasn’t expecting.

Just 4 minutes later 6Z48 appeared, following the 47s towards the south.

A pair of 47s can’t be bad:-
