L/E No. 4

Class 37/6 No. 37610 in Direct Rail Services colours

DIRECT RAIL SERVICES generated plenty of news in the late 1990s by virtue of its heritage traction fleet. There was interest not only in its Class 20s but also the more powerful Class 37s, which it initially acquired from Eurostar. The royal blue looked just as good in miniature, so the obvious progression was to ask Lima to produce a model. No. 37610 was the result and sold out quickly, prompting the Italian company to run several standard releases with different running numbers not long afterwards.
