Northern’s Class 37 hauled trains in the Lake District finished for good yesterday, and we have been lucky enough to be sent some footage of the trains.
The Class 37s were on hire from Direct Rail Services (DRS) and operated between Barrow-In-Furness and Carlisle via Ravenglass.
However, due to Northern now having enough Diesel Multiple Units, these will now replace the 37s on the route.
Thanks to Josh Haworth, we have been lucky enough to share this video footage as well as various photos of the last day of the workings.
The video features 37558 (37424) departing Workington in the evening darkness, producing a very good noise, with a few toots of the horn.
There hasn’t been any confirmation yet as to what the Class 37s and Mk2 coaches will now work in the country.
Below are a few images from Josh’s trip to the Lake District.
A big thank you to Josh Haworth for sending us the video and the images!
