Seen here at Dereham, and renumbered for the Mid Norfolk gala on 25th September 2010, 37003 briefly became 37360. Out of service at present awaiting power unit repairs.
The aftermath of a collision in Grays, Essex, 37008 was moved to Stratford assessment, then to Tinsley for component recovery and finally to Crewe Works. Pictured in the works in August 1995. It was eventually cut up there by MRJ Phillips in July 1996.
A collision at Singer in Glasgow at the end of January 1987 with a couple of EMU's caused the end of 37011. Another view at Rollason's, Wellington on 3rd September 1989. Very little remained and was completely gone with a week of these shots.
Not sure the new style bogies for 37012 will be that efficient!! At one stage this loco would haul various 'Class 1' passenger trains all over the network. Named in Scotland "Loch Rannoch" and unofficially "DERWENT" by Tinsley.
Assigned for component recovery, seen here at Wigan, June 2000. It was later moved to Sims Metals in Beeston where it ended its days in August 2003.
Another at Springs Branch, Wigan for component recovery was 37026. From East Anglia to Scotland where it was named "Loch Awe" then one of the Motherwell batch used for supplying Ravenscraig steel works, numbered 37320 "Shapfell". Finally cut up in Wigan, July 2000.
This loco started life as D6729 at Stratford finding work at most of the Eastern Region depots. Renumbered to 37029 in late 1973 it was withdrawn in February 1993 but escaped the cutters torch and in June 2000 became part of the Riviera Trains Operational fleet. Taken into the DRS fold in October 2003 and now preserved, based at the Epping & Ongar Railway.
The weekend of 24/25/26 September 2010 saw a gala at the Mid Norfolk railway attended by many 37's, preserved or still on the main line. D6729 came from the Eping and Ongar railway and is seen here at Dereham on the 24th.
No longer required 37035 was eventually sent to Booths of Rotherham to be disposed of. Date unknown, possibly very early January 2000.
Warrington did for this loco. Collision damaged 37062 is not long for this world, having been towed from Warrington to Doncaster Works, probably taken on 22nd October 1989. It would alter be towed once more to Vic Berry's at Leicester for the final cut.
Another waiting a sad demise, 37068 sits at Immingham, June 1999. It would meet its maker at Booth's of Rotherham in August 2005.
With the bodyside grills missing it would be difficult to work out this loco was built be Robert Stephenson & Hawthorns f Darlington.
Very little left of what used to 37070 at Toton, its use a vehicle for power unit overhauls seemed limited at best. June 1999.
Upper grills divided gives a clue to the fact that possibly the loco was built by Robert Stephenson and Hawthorns at Darlington. This one was and is one to escape scrap and into the world of preservation, 37075 sits at Loughborough, date unknown.
Another RSH built loco, sat in the yard at Springs Branch, Wigan, 37078 is deemed for component recovery but precious little would be reused form any of the locos there. Date unknown, it would later be moved by road to EMR at Kingsbury for final disposal in early 2004.
More stored locos than they knew what to do with, so in order to make room several 37's were moved to Immingham Docks, one of those being RSH built 37083 in "Dutch" livery, photographed there in August 1999. It would later be returned to Immingham depot to be cut in April 2000.
Another in "Dutch" livery with a Transrail branding, RSH built 37088 with the odd bit missing waits for the end at Springs Branch. Having become 37323 "Clydesdale" during its life, it would return to 37088 at a final journey to Booth's of Rotherham in October 2002.
One of the Robert Stephenson & Hawthorns, Darlington built loco, it didn't help 37092 escape the final cut. It would end its days not far away from its birth being scrapped at TJ Thompson's of Stockton in October 2001. Seen here at Toton on 31st May 1999.
Flame cut reminder of a loco long gone. 37096 was unofficially named "SPITFIRE" by Tinsley depot in September 1989. Within a week it would be stored unserviceable and scrapped two years later at MC Metals, Glasgow.
Moved from the North Norfolk Railway to Gloucestershire/Warwickshire Railway at Toddington, 37099 starts on the unloading process, 18th April 1999. The loco later moved to the East Lancs Railway and has recently gone back onto the mainline as part of the Colas fleet and painted in their livery.
The gang getting into action, before 37099 becomes 37324.
First run at the GWR, running-round at Gotherington on 26th March 2000. Having had a great deal of work done mechanically it would take several months of hard work to prep and paint the loco. Seems from this picture like it might be leaking a little.
After overhaul. 37099 reverted back to one of its previous guises and is seen here as 37324 "Clydebridge". Possibly the final days at Toddington (GWR) as it waits on the unloading road for transportation in March 2003 to the East Lancs Railway.
Part of the Railfrieght Distribution sector, 37101 is stored at Immingham, June 1999. It was due to be renumbered to 37345 but never carried the new number and would later be scrapped here in August 2003.
Always thought the bogies went under the loco, not in the engine compartment. Not a lot left of 37107 at Springs Branch. It remained like this for quite a while before finally being disposed of in May 2001.
Think most people thought this one would make it into preservation, but sadly it wasn't to be. Barrow Hill, June 1999. Eastfield allocated when named Loch Eil Outward Bound" and a Motherwell steel loco for a time as 37326 "Glengarnock" It was a complete surprise and real waste that this loco would be cut up by EMR at Kingsbury in July 2003.
Another loco that some believed would make it into preservation or return to mainline service, unfortunately it wasn't to be. Assigned for component recovery at Wigan, and seen there in June 2000, it would escape to moved to Peak rail but things didn't work out and was scrapped at Booth's of Rotherham in April 2007.
In the scrap line at Toton on 31st May 1999. At one stage this loco became 37312 "Clyde Iron" for work out of Motherwell depot but reverted back to 37137 and in Mainline branding without a full livery change. Condemned for component recovery in would be moved to TJ Thompson's in Stockton for final disposal in July 2006.
Another that may have looked forward to life in preservation but was sadly denied to former Bath Rd. loco. It might look fairly intact here but the other side would show the reason for withdrawal, that being a battery fire. Seen here at Springs Branch, Wigan prior to its trip to Carnforth.
