The Class 37 Locomotive Group (C37LG) is a group of rail enthusiasts dedicated to preserving and operating working examples of English Electric Type 3 (British Rail Class 37) locomotives for the general public, and to promote their interest and history, being part of our nation's industrial and railway heritage. The C37LG is a non-profit making organisation, and has recently been registered as a Charity, Reference Number : 1137787

More Details can be found in the 'About Us' section of the site.

The Class 37 Locomotive Group have now moved 37003 to UKRL's premises in Leicester.

We have engaged their services, which do not need any introduction when you look at their work for Europhoenix on 37800 and 37884, to bring 37003 back to life.

There are three packages of work to be undertaken over the next 18-24 months before her return to Dereham.

1. Rebuild and recommissioning of the power unit.
2. Refurbish the aging bodywork.
3. Repaint the loco.

We all aspired to completing the work on site at Dereham ourselves, but without the right facilities and too many Norfolk winters now chalked up to "experience", we decided that something else had to happen to stop the rot.

With her 60th Anniversary fast approaching, this was an event we did not want, or could afford to miss. And if we timed it right, we could end up playing a starring role at events during 2020.

Under the banner of Project 3-60. We will wind back the clock to 1960, from where we can go "full circle" through the chronological history of our loco once again: D6703/6703/37003/37360, and most importantly celebrate No.3's 60th Anniversary in 2020, IN STYLE!"

I hope you all feel the anticipation that we do in the Group for the end result, and that you continue to show your support in all the kind ways that you do.

Please share this message with the world. Change is coming, and it is coming fast! And all being well, it could be coming to a railway near you in two years time. If we get invited of course ;-)
