Brush type 4 1592
Class 47/4 in two tone BR Green. Brush type 4 1592 which was later renumbered 47544 with a down Plymouth District express passes Southall MPD on a Saturday morning in June 1972. A Mark I full brake (BG) was marshaled next to the engine and the next two carriages are early Mark II TSOs. I was spending the last few hours photographing trains before catching an Air Canada flight home. Notice the AEC (Home of London's Buses) sign and factory just above the locomotive.
47544 was withdrawn from service during February 1990 & cut up in July 1991 at M.C. Metals Glasgow.

1592 was working 1C63 (13:15 Paddington - Cardiff).
