37717 near Brierley Hill
37717 blasts away from Brierley Hill with 6M40 Cardiff - Wednesbury at 08:23 on Thursday 30th August 1990. On a still day the sound of Class 37s on full power would be audible for a good five minutes until they reached Dudley tunnel. Imagine living in the nearby houses and being treated to the sound of this every weekday morning while eating your breakfast. Fantastic while it lasted. This stretch of line is still open to serve Round Oak steel terminal, but the last 37s to work along here on steel trains were 37669 and 37670 in the spring of 2006.
