The curved platform at Manningtree gives the driver of Norwich-bound 47 605 a good view of proceedings on April 8th 1985. Electrification work was nearing completion for the 'switch-on' to Ipswich and Harwich. The remaining section to Norwich was completed the following year and Class 47s were destined to be replaced by Class 86s on London-Norwich services.
