L/E No. 1

Class 37/0 No. 37116 'Sister Dora' in rail blue with Transrail branding

FOURSIGHT PUBLICATION’S FIRST limited edition loco to be promoted through Rail Express magazine was manufactured by Lima, long before it was to be taken over by Hornby. The offer marked the impending privatisation of BR’s freight operation and replicated one of Tranrail’s Class 37/0s that had been given a recent heavy overhaul. Suggested by RE’s boss and taken forward by the freight company’s managing director, the loco was unusually given a ‘heritage’ BR blue-based livery and became an instant celebrity.
