Two Days, Three Class 37s

A couple of days at Gilberdyke this week brought a total of three class 37s! Both were working track recording trains. Direct Rail Services 37607 and 37609 worked 1Q13, Derby RTC - Derby RTC via Hull and the following day 97301, formerly 37100, worked 1Q14 Neville Hill - Derby RTC via Hull. They sounded lovely!

A closer view of the class 97 passing - if you're modelling the contemporary scene, then I think they'd make a lovely subject for a model - Bachmann loco, Shawplan bits and glazing and PenBits bogies. Sorted!

  1. The 37 has always been my favourite diesel locomotive and I'm delighted to see that some are still working. Not bad for a class that is getting on for almost as old as me, though can never be. I had a Triang 'Type 3' about forty five years ago. They look dated now but still have lots of character, despite the horrible colour schemes. Nice shots, thank you.
