The much-improved Bachmann model is now ready for service, depicted in a typical work-stained condition. With the four-character headcodes still in use, radiator grilles in place and a lack of air brake equipment, the model is rooted in mid-1970s condition.

While it's taken a lot of work, the quality of the original model is such that it provides the perfect basis for the detailing work and a decent weathering job brings out the best in the moulded detail.

See the project demonstrated in full in Model Rail issue 160. And don't forget that you can order your own limited edition model of 37003 from the Class 37 Locomotive Group.
