37503 at Walsall
37503 emerges from Park St tunnel, Walsall, with the 6G33 Bescot - Bloxwich trip. This was taken at 10:02 on Monday 25th June 2001, which was an hour or so late for G33 if memory serves me correctly. At the time I tended to think of the early 2000s as a fallow period, but in retrospect it was something of an Indian summer in which there were still daily trains around Bescot producing Class 37s and 56s. The consist of 6G33 on this day reflected the changeover from bogie wagons to four-wheelers. Soon the VAA and OBA/OCA variants would take over completely, before in turn being displaced by VGA/VKAs which were used until the train ceased running.
