Pete White comments : On the way out 47512 was a bit sluggish and 47529 was found for the return, but the AWS failed at Milford Junc. Another change at Sheffield produced No-Heat 47060, but by Bristol Parkway the Guard was doing his nut about the cold. Bath Road eventually dug out a none to healthy, snowploughed 50012 (it wasn't that cold!).
