Cool, thanks :D

Sorry, we're staying with diesels but going West for this one...

Three class 47 locomotives became celebrities when they were repainted for the GWR 150 celebrations in 1985. What were their names and numbers?

Firstly, an apology! It appears that there may actually have been 4 class 47s that received GWR 150 livery, but I only found 3 of them in my research, hence my question :oops:

@Ashley Hill, you have 3 of the correct ones and so have fulfilled the question (The other which I found was 47628 Sir Daniel Gooch), so please, the paint shop is yours :D

Camelford for no 3
Stumped for the last one, assuming both Wadebridge and Padstow had GWR nameboards as it got there first
