South Wales has enjoyed a long association with the Class 37 locomotive. From the early days of double and triple headers hauling lengthy coal trains, right through to passenger trains on the Rhymney branch, the haunting growl of the EE beast could be heard bouncing off the valley walls! To celebrate their years in South Wales, this brand new pictorial book looks at 30 years of operations. Starting in the 1970s with the BR corporate blue, original and unrefurbished 37/0s go about their daily business, and into the 1980s and the Rail freight years, the 37/9s and the sectorisation. In the 1990s, the refurbished 37/7s in two tone grey locos with coal and steel branding, and finally, the Rhymney line, the early days with Regional Railways locos, no-heat workings, rail tours and the final trains. Featuring more than 60 photos in full colour, in the format of one photo per page and printed on glossy art paper, this latest book from Train Crazy is a must for anybody interested in Welsh Class 37s.
