Midlands Region Area Exclusive Limited
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.
