Hi saxokid
There were two class 47s named "Rail Riders" 47406 which was scrapped and cut up in Dec 1995 and 47488 named "RailRiders" in August 1988 a name it carried until 1992 when it was put into store.It was later sold to Peter Waterman, and I believe now carries another name and is preserved and kept at Barrow Hill,hope this helps.
