Just a quick question, is this locomotive still on the books of DRS? According to wikipedia it is the last remaining 47 at DRS, but I'd like to get this confirmed.

Thanks in advance.

47813 was sold to LSL, Hoskings company at Crewe, but seems to be leased/hired back to DRS for those coach heating duties at KM as mentioned.

Oh I see, thanks for clearing that up. It was also nice to see 47501 at Crewe, which has also been sold to LSL where it will be used as a super shunter with pre-tops number of D1944. It looked gorgeous in its new coat of BR two tone green.

In fact, I'm now going to contradict myself... 47813 confirmed as still being owned by DRS and has not, as stated elsewhere and repeated by me, been sold to LSL. Source is impeccable, right from the horse's mouth. All other 47 sales were as reported in the press, etc.
