Welcome to the official homepage of 47840. The locomotive has finally ended its
extensive 47 year mainline career. This part of the site will have lots of pictures of the
loco on the mainline and on the WSR. If you have any to add please email
Thanks for your support as members of the group and enthusiasts. Come down and
have a ride behind the loco on arguably one of the most testing preserved railways.
