Class 37 - 37258

Repainted in the controversial general grey paint scheme in May 1990, like the majority of locomotives to gain this livery 37258 quickly swapped it for the 'Dutch' variant, being outshopped with the upper body yellow band in September 1991, also receiving a high visibility headlight, cast double arrows and Cardiff Canton depot plaques at the same time. Other distinctive spotting features include cast bogies and Western Region and standard lamp irons. Although wearing the colours of the civil engineer's department, the locomotive saw regular freight use as well as deputising on the Cardiff-Bristol Temple Meads-Weymouth summer dated services and passenger trains to the Glastonbury Festival throughout the 1990s. It lost its cast accoutrements in 1997 and was renumbered as 37384 the following year after being shod with a set of regeared CP7 bogies. It was eventually stored in 1999, still in 'Dutch' colours
