Midlands Region Area Exclusive Limited Edition Model

Intercity ‘Mainline’ was an intermediate (unbranded) livery that was carried between the original Intercity

livery and the then new Intercity Swallow livery. Only 20 Class 47s carried this livery and 47832 was one

of these locomotives. When newly outshopped as a Class 47/8 with extended range fuel tanks in 1989,

Intercity ‘Mainline’ livery was carried with only the smaller black numbers on its cab side and it ran in this

condition from 1989 until at least 1991. This is the chosen period in which the model is portrayed.

Initially allocated to Crewe Diesel depot after its conversion, it soon found its way back to its former

Western Region haunts, as in June 1989 it once again returned to Bristol Bath Road depot and would have

been used on internal and inter-regional InterCity passenger services.

47832 has carried a variety of liveries since being built in 1964 and is still in existence today and is in use

with West Coast Railways.

Bachmann Branchline have not previously produced a Class 47 in this intermediate

livery and this should be a popular choice with customers who model this period.
