As unveiled in the Autumn 2022 British Railway Announcements, Bachmann are delighted to present this Graham Farish Class 37/0 No. 37032 ‘Mirage’ in BR Railfreight Red Stripe livery with an authentic weathered finish.
The Class 37 is a favourite for many, and the Graham Farish model captures the unmistakable look of the prototype with a highly detailed bodyshell and exquisite livery application. Depicting a loco with split headcode boxes which have been plated over and fitted with a marker light in each, the high levels of detail are matched by a high level of performance thanks to the powerful motor, diecast chassis block, directional lighting and DCC decoder socket. Wearing the iconic BR Railfreight Red Stripe livery, number 37032 is a unique example having been given the unofficial name ‘Mirage’ which was hand applied by the staff at its home depot, Tinsley.

CLASS 37 HISTORY
The British Rail 1955 Modernisation Plan paved the way for the large-scale replacement of steam traction with diesel locomotives, and one of the most successful diesel locomotive designs to result from this was the English Electric Type 3. These 1,700hp Types 3 diesel-electric locomotives were built at English Electric’s Vulcan Foundry and by Robert Stephenson & Hawthorns between 1960 and 1965, with 309 examples produced in total.
The class proved popular with railwaymen and so in 1985, a major refurbishment programme for the Class 37 locomotives was sanctioned to extend the working lives of 135 locomotives. Features of the refurbishment involved plating over the four-character head codes and sealing off the nose end communication doors. Dedicated freight locomotives received lower gearing to increase the tractive effort, and some were fitted with extra ballast or even more powerful engines. A new subclass was created for locomotives refurbished with Electric Train Heating (ETH) equipment, allowing their use on passenger trains the whole year-round.
With the sectorisation of British Rail taking hold in the early-1980s, the locomotives returned to traffic following refurbishment in a wide and diverse range of liveries. Passenger machines appeared in BR Blue Large Logo, InterCity and Regional Railways schemes to name just three, whilst freight engines received numerous varieties of Railfreight livery, Transrail, Mainline and Loadhaul. The Class continued to be widely used into the Privatisation-era, with examples operating for the likes of EWS, DRS, West Coast Railways and Colas, whilst others have received ‘retro’ heritage repaints.
