Mini-history - Copyright Kernow Model Rail Centre / Simon Bendall

Like 47798, the other Royal claret Class 47 swapped the Rail Express Systems version of the livery for an EWS interpretation in August/September 1997. It too followed the same path initially with its regal duties intermixed with passenger and freight work into the early 2000s. With the decision by EWS to replace the pair with Class 67s, 47799 was stood down early in 2004, moving initially to Ferrybridge for secure store inside the former National Power depot. During 2008, it was sent to Old Oak Common for use as a static electric train supply for the Riviera Trains charter fleet based there as well as an occasional depot shunter. The following year brought a move to Eastleigh for the same purpose, it eventually passing into preservation at the Eden Valley Railway in 2011, where it still resides in store today.
