Brush Type 4 diesel electric No. 1567 speeds along the sea wall towards Teignmouth on 14th August 1971 with 1B55, the 12:30 London Paddington - Paignton service. New from Crewe Works in March 1964, the loco became Class 47 No. 47450 under TOPS in February 1974 and was later unofficially named 'Blackbuck' by Tinsley Depot. It was withdrawn in May 1991 and scrapped by Booth Roe Metals of Rotherham during February 1993.
