100% certain it was a 47. The same livery as that pair of 33s at Clapham Yard.

47744 (now SDXL) was transferred from Crewe DMD to Barrow Hill on the 23rd behind 47703.

Back up north then :(.

i think it was moving 47744 to barrow hill for eventual use as a full time dedicated class 47 for the blue pull man operated by FMR...
either that or overhaul for use in p;lace of the 2x class 47's painted in this livery
