START UP D6700 AT NRM CLASS 37 ANNIVERSARY

To mark the 50th anniversary of the Class 37 entering traffic in 1960 the National Railway Museum (NRM) is offering the chance for diesel fans to win a once in a lifetime experience.

Entrants are invited to submit their tales about their passion for diesels and the most interesting anecdote will win the chance to start up newly restored D6700 locomotive, the star attraction at the Museum’s free diesel event on the 16th and 17th October.

D6700, the first of the English Electric Type 3 diesel electric locomotives to enter traffic, was given to the National Collection in 1998 and is currently undergoing extensive body repairs and a repaint in the Museum workshop, ready for the 50th anniversary celebrations.

To open the weekend event on October 16th and 17th, which offers cab access and diesel rides, the NRM will also be getting ready to rumble with a mass start up of ‘growlers’. The lucky winner will be first to enter the footplate of D6700 and start the massive roar at 10.30am on the 16th.

Chris Beet, Engineering and Rail Operations Manager at the NRM said:

"It’s an amazing prize for anyone who enjoys the sound of a diesel engine. 309 Class 37s were built between 1960 and 1965 and a good number of them are still in traffic today on the national network so we know there are many people out there with a real fondness for them. We want to hear from the drivers who took the first Class 37s on the mainline, as well as those who have a real passion for diesel traction. Tell us your tale, and if it’s the most interesting from all those we receive – in the opinion of our judges – you’ll get to press the D6700's start button on the big day."

To enter email your story to competitions@nrm.org.uk, remembering to include name, address and contact telephone number. Photographs can be included but please no more than three pictures per entry, and make sure they’re less than 200Kb each. Closing date is Friday 8th October 2010. Terms and conditions apply.

On Thursday 9th September, 37075 will be working up to four ballast trains up the cauldon low branch from Cheddleton. Trains will consist of 37075 and several ballast hoppers and a shark plough brake. This will be the first ever large loco to use the branch since the closure of the line.
