Description

Without doubt the most successful diesel design of the BR era and a strong contender to be called the greatest locomotive in British railway history, the definitive model of the English Electric Type 3 / Class 37 has been a long time coming. 309 examples of this mixed-traffic 1,750hp Co-Co class were built by English Electric and Robert Stephenson & Hawthorn between 1960 and 1965 to two basic designs, split and centre headcode. They could be found systemwide leading all kinds of freight and passenger services. 135 were rebuilt in the mid 1980s giving the class a further lease of life, while further major rebuilds have taken place since privatisation.

As the owners of 37403 ‘Isle of Mull’, we are delighted to partner with Accurascale to offer an exclusive run of their highly rated 37/4 model depicting our locomotive in her present day condition. This model will retail for £259.99 (DCC sound) with a £10.00 charge for post & packaging. At this point a £45 non-refundable deposit is required to secure your model, with a balancing payment of £224.99 required prior to dispatch. Delivery is expected Q4 2025.
