Built in 1965 at Crewe Works, D1842 (TOPS No. 47192) spent it’s life based around the Crewe area. It was also the first Class 47 to enter preservation and was restored to full working order and original livery by a team comprising Heritage Centre paid staff, and volunteers from both the 8E Railway Association and the Heritage Centre. After a spell on the Churnet Valley Railway, the locomotive returned to the Heritage Centre in 2008 to help celebrate our 21st Anniversary. 2018 sees the locomotive celebrate 30 Years in Preservation at Crewe Heritage Centre with a full body repaint into original livery currently underway.
