Class 37/0 37119 rumbles through Manchester Victoria with a train of eastbound tanks. Having raised a query on the train’s identity via the Freightmaster Forum, I am advised that this could have been 7E60 returning discharged bitumen tanks from Preston to Lindsey O.R..
Released from Vulcan Foundry as D6700 in December 1960, it was an Immingham machine at the time of this image and had not long been fitted with twin tanks. A classified repair at Crewe in early 1988 saw it renumbered as 37350. The locomotive worked through into EWS ownership and was restored to near original condition by staff at Thornaby TMD prior to joining the National Collection at the National Railway Museum, York.
