The Modern Railway

This is a scene on the present day railway.

Class 47, 47843, passing Gilberdyke with 4D94, Doncaster Decoy - Hull Docks empty gypsum working on 6th May 2015. The full size version can be found on Flickr.

Here we see 47843, which entered traffic in 1965, running on a mainline signalled using absolute block and semaphore signals. And this was taken this week - this is part of the 21st Century railway!
