After a somewhat troublesome week for DRS '47s', things got worse on Sunday 6th October when the Northern Belle turned into a total farce following the failure of 47832. The 5Z54 Norwich to Nottingham ECS departed over an hour late before sadly 47832 failed near Sandy. This resulted in the Northern Belle circular from Nottingham to Nottingham via Sheffield being cancelled as well as the Passenger's Sunday lunch. Eventually, 47501 ran-round the train and worked the 5Z55 Peterborough to Crewe CS ECS captured here at Thurmaston, with both '47s' powering.
