FM Rail are believed to be operating two sets in Scotland next week as previously detailed, one will be top’n’tail 31s, the other will be top’n’tail 47s (probably 709 + 712).
Further to that, 47703 was seen leaving Derby heading north with Virgin liveried mk2’s yesterday afternoon.
47816 was expected to move dead in tow on a working to Crewe shortly.

Note: Sulzerpower is updated daily I will update the Rail-Gen page with news when the site is updated.
