Rail Operations Group has announced that they have applied messages to two of their Class 47 diesel locomotives saying “Thank You NHS”.
Both Class 47s will spread the “Thank You NHS” message across the UK when carrying out the various services Rail Operations Group undertake, such as rolling stock delivery, testing, maintenance, modification and refurbishment.
ROG follows in the footsteps of the likes of Northern, Southern and Thameslink in applying vinyls to thank the front line workers in the fight against Coronavirus.
