The mission today was to London Euston for the filming of a Debenhams commercial for Christmas. Will the 47s be out of shot?

The test cars were 6264, 977868 and 999508. 6264 is a generator van converted from BG 80971 (York 1956) later 92923. 977868 is a radio survey coach coverted from Mk 2E TSO 5846 (Derby 1972-73). 999508 was formerly a BR built inspection saloon (Swindon 1960) and continues as a track inspection coach. Why no DBSO?
