37510 near Water Orton
Tuesday 1st May 2007 produced a 6Z37 Stoke Gifford - Ashford special, a stoneblower hauled by 37510. The train ran the long way round, via Cheltenham, Birmingham and the WCML, presumably for pathing or (more likely) route knowledge reasons. Having arrived early in the Birmingham area 6Z37 was held for its path at Water Orton West. It's seen here just about to pass under the M42 at 12:39. Another two trains with DRS 37 power ran through the West Midlands on this day: a Crewe - Oxley ECS with 37229, and the Bridgwater - Crewe flasks with 37038+37218.
