At sectorisation, BR created Intercity, Departmental, Railfreight (later Trainload Freight), London & South Eastern, Provincial and Parcels. To distinguish itself from the other sectors, Parcels adopted a livery, similar to that of Railfreight/Trainload Freight, but decided to adapt it to recognise their biggest customer; the Royal Mail. Parcels sector Red/Grey was the result.
The class 47/7s were converted for use on the Edinburgh-Glasgow expresses, but when DMUs were introduced to that line, most of the "Shove Duff" fleet found a new home at Network SouthEast. However, a few ended up in the Parcel sector and received their house colours. Ironically, most of the Parcels ones ended up being hired to Network SouthEast, to bolster their class 47 fleet; their liveries being modified to reflect this!
47717 was among the small fleet of the /7 fleet, that Parcels took on; after ScotRail had finished with them. Here, it carries it's owner's red and grey livery; with flashes added, to reflect it's hire to Network SouthEast.
