On December 22nd 2017 I was invited along to take photographs of the Heavy Tractor Group's newly acquired Class 37/7 diesel locomotive 37 714 which was handed over from Direct Rail Services.
Having recently been resprayed at Derby it was resplendent in railfreight triple grey metals livery to denote the colour scheme the locomotive carried in the late 1980's, early '90's.
This day saw the hand-over between the two parties at the Great Central Railways' Loughborough Station where the locomotive is based.
Many thanks to Andy Gillett (Chairman of HTG) for inviting me along and also to the group's band of dedicated and welcoming volunteers. facebook
