Class 37



The most numerous class in South Wales, used for all sorts of roles but seen primarily double-headed on MGR (Merry go Round) coal trains from the valleys. These 1750hp were true all-purpose locomotives and I liked them a lot. Thier familiarity was such that I took only one photo of 37's working an MGR train in Cardiff, of course I wish now that I'd taken far more.
