Class 47 must surely have been dual braked from the start.ChrisCooper said:Shows how old it is, that's the old Vacume only Train brake. The handle like on the BVE version was fitted when they were dual braked.
Yes, it's definately a 47 - I wasn't suggesting otherwise. (After all the 57s have only been around for a few years). I only included the comparison links because a previous poster said that not much had changed between the old 47 picture and the 57s when in fact quite a bit has changed. The loco brake position being one of the most obvious. The combined brake lever has always been in the same position as depicted in the original picture.EmergencyBrake said:The train should be a class 47 as the class 57 has the AWS sunflower alongside the guages.
Very interesting that Chris, thanks.ChrisCooper said:Shows how old it is, that's the old Vacume only Train brake.
