(1) 47511 was attached only to provide an ETH and lighting supply (the batteries were flat on the three Mk2 air-con coaches). It did not provide traction power. Richard Rooker comments: I believe this loco number is in error as 47511 became 47714 some seven years earlier in March 1985 - he has note of 47551 on a Carlisle to Manchester Victoria charter...he thinks this would have been it.
