Brush Type 4 Co-Co diesel electric locomotive number D1733 in 1964 with British Rail's XP64 experimental passenger train. The train was made up of eight Mark 1 coaches, prototypes for the new Mark 2 carriage design. The loco was  painted in an experimental livery of turquoise blue and ivory with yellow warning panels on the front. The new British Rail double arrow symbol appeared on the cab sides. The Brush Type 4 locomotive later became known as the Class 47 and D1733 was renumbered 47853.
