Class 37 Locomotive Group


Must give a plug for the Class 37 Locomotive Group! The Group owns 37 003, and has recently moved to a permanent home at Dereham on the Mid-Norfolk Railway. The C37LG intends to return 37 003 the mainline if possible, and as part of the fundraising effort has recently commissioned a Limited Edition model of 003 in 1970s BR Blue condition.

For details of the Group, its activities and the 00 gauge model please visit the excellent website at I hope to bring news of the loco’s progress, and the Groups’ activities in this Blog!

Barrow Hill Roundhouse



I recently attended the Barrow Hill Type 5 Diesel gala. The event brought together Deltics, Westerns, Grids and Sheds. In addition were some of the resident diesels, plus those under restoration, conversion or repair by Harry Needle.

Unfortunately I was left a little disappointed, no Deltic until 3pm, with 55019 being used for testing and sound recordings for a well known model railway sound-chip provider, and 55022 not running till very late in the day. However, we were treated to 56098 and a fantastic looking 56101. Look out for the pictures coming soon to

Welcome to the first of what I hope will be many posts on the new imagesoftransport blog. I will use it to inform readers of new photographs, of upcoming events, to discuss railways, both real and model, and as a general platform for news and views! I hope you enjoy it.
