Northern has announced that they will be running a special service to celebrate the Class 37s on the Cumbrian Coast.

The train operator and Direct Rail Services (DRS) have commissioned a farewell return journey between Carlisle and Carnforth on Friday 11 January.

The Class 37s were removed from the service on the Coast and were replaced with DMU units on 28 December 2018.

The commemorative journey will be the last chance for rail enthusiasts to ride on the 37s on this route, and to mark the occasion special keepsake tickets have been produced.

All money raised from the event will be donated to local charities.

A maximum of 180 tickets, priced at £37 each, are available for the event.

Names will be selected at random. Northern will contact each individual by Tuesday 8 January. 

Successful applicants must bring this letter, along with a cash payment of £37 and proof of ID on the day of the event.


Below are the timings for the farewell run:
