West Coast Railways has named one of their class 47s 'V.E. Day 75th Anniversary'. 47245 now proudly carries the striking nameplates to commemorate the 75th anniverasry of the end of WW2 in Europe. The nameplates were unveiled at the Carnforth Depot of West Coast Railways at the beginning of May. 47245 has been a regular and reliable performer on many WCR's railtours since April 2006, when it was restored to mainline operational condition.
