Having emerged from long running repairs which included re fitment of vacuum brake equipment 47840 'North Star' was in use with GBRf in March 2007. With its planned hand over from Porterbrook into preservation just weeks away the locomotive was rostered for a GBRf move from Derby Litchurch Lane to Plymouth Laira conveying a rake of overhauled MkIII's. The working ran as 5Z47 and is pictured here at Lea Marston on 6th March 2007.
