This was the final Summer of the locomotive hauled Harwich Boat Train and was operated and routed as it had been the prveious year.
Class 47/4’s were the norm on the Harwich-Sheffield-Harwich leg with Class 45/1’s on the Sheffield-Manchester-Sheffield leg. A couple of Exceptions were the occasional use of Class 47/0’s on both legs.
Sightings are sparser than in previous years, thus further reports would be very much welcomed by Peter Hall
