2002 marks the end of the Class 47s on Virgin’s Cross Country services, and with it the end of the 47s in front line service.

Video Profile – The Class 47s.

A programme filmed in the period from 1987 to 1990 when the Class was still dominant throughout the network, and active on everything from express passenger to Speedlink workings.
