The C37LG is a non-profit making organisation, and is registered as a Charity Reference Number : 1137787.
The group has members all over the country, and internationally, and is managed by a committee elected by members. 37003 : Released 28 December 1960 from English Electric Vulcan Foundry, Works Number EE/VF2866/D582, numbered D6703 in British Railways all-over green, and part of the first batch of Type 3s (D6700-D6703) delivered during 1960. Later, she was allocated to various other Eastern Region depots: Tinsley, Thornaby, Healey Mills, Gateshead and Immingham.Our loco has carried two names: in April 1963 she was named "First East Anglian Regiment", but the name was never unveiled; much later, while based at Tinsley in 1989, 37003 received an unofficial'painted-on' nameplate "TIGER MOTH", which she carried until overhauled at Doncaster in 1992 (and repainted in'Dutch' civil engineer's livery). She was then rebuilt pretty much from the ground up: everything from installing a new power unit from 37073! Via rebuilding the cabs down to refitting the original buffer-beam skirts - until in 2003 she was restarted for the first time in preservation. By late 2004, in a fresh coat of Rail Blue and with reinstated headcode blinds, she was ready to haul her first passenger train since her BR days.
37003 is currently at UKRL in Leicester being restored to 1960's condition. You can follow her progress in the Loco Progress section of our website.
