Class 37 Locomotive

The Class 37 is a mixed traffic (passenger and freight) diesel-electric locomotive, built by English Electric.

A total of 308 units was produced from 1961, powered by a 12 cylinder turbo charged diesel engine of 1,750 bhp.

These 108 tonne Co-Co units feature a protruding nose end ahead of the driving compartment, giving them a transatlantic look.

Selected as part of BR's life extension programme Class 37 locomotives were refurbished to extend their use for both passenger and freight applications. The design of this bogie caters for both the fabricated type of side frame and also the cast type dependant of preference.
