Departmental Class 47/4 No. 97545, more usually seen on test train workings, passes Hatton Derbyshire on 7th May 1989 with a returning footex from Manchester to Nottingham. This was for the FA cup semi-final replay at Trafford Park between Nottingham Forest and Liverpool after the Hillsborough disaster. No. 97545 became No. 47972 and was withdrawn in October 2007.
