The BR Class 47 is a class of British Railways locomotive built in the 1960s and used to the present day in the UK. They were historically used for both passenger and freight services, however since the introduction of newer locomotives they are only operated on freight services now. 32 Class 47s have survived into preservation including D1661 'North Star' which is featured in Train Sim World's West Somerset Railway route.
Whilst only D1661 is advertised as part of the West Somerset Railway, all 32 preserved examples are featured in the dlc in BR Green livery.
D1661, the resident Class 47 on the West Somerset Railway, was introduced into service in 1965, allocated to Landore Depot in Swansea, before being moved to Old Oak Common TMD in 1973, followed by a move to Cardiff Canton. D1661's final allocation was Bristol Bath Road in 1998, and was preserved in 2007.
The BR Class 47 is also included in the upcoming Northern Trans-Pennine route, set in 1983, where the Class 47 is used for hauling TransPennine passenger services. The version in Northern Trans-Pennine is in BR Blue livery.
