The Bachmann model, probably the best ready-to-run ‘37’ yet, is actually a limited edition run of BR blue 37003, produced on behalf of the Class 37 Locomotive Group. You can buy your own factory-spec limited edition model, or alternatively you can send a sealed bid to win this super-detailed and weathered loco, with all funds going towards the restoration of the real 37003.
It’s been a joy to work on this model and I hope whoever wins the auction enjoys running the model on their layout (or regarding it on a shelf!). It’s always a nice feeling when a restoration group can raise some much-needed funds from selling a bespoke model. Let’s hope the real 37003 is soon restored to full order so that she can be enjoyed by enthusiasts for years to come.
