The Class 37 Locomotive Group are very pleased to finally tell the world officially, that 37003 will be moving to UKRL's premises in Leicester in the next three to four weeks.

We have engaged their services, which do not need any introduction when you look at 37800 and 37884, to bring 37003 back to life.

There are three packages of work to be undertaken over the next 18-24 months before her return to Dereham.

1. Rebuild and recommissioning of the power unit.
2. Refurbish the aging bodywork.
3. Repaint the loco.

We all aspired to completing the work on site at Dereham ourselves, but without the right facilities and too many Norfolk winters now chalked up to "experience", we decided that something else had to happen to stop the rot.

With her 60th Anniversary fast approaching, this was an event we did not want, or could afford to miss. And if we timed it right, we could end up playing a starring role at events during 2020.

For pretty much the last twelve months, we have been planning how to make this happen, and now with the support of our Members, our friends at UKRL and all you fans of the old Girl out there; it is soon to become a reality.

So today we launch to the world: Project 3-60.

"Project 3-60 will allow us to wind back the clock to 1960, from where we can go "full circle" through the chronological history of our loco once again: D6703/6703/37003/37360, and most importantly celebrate No.3's 60th Anniversary in 2020, IN STYLE!"

I hope you all feel the anticipation that we do in the Group for the end result, and that you continue to show your support in all the kind ways that you do.

Please share this message with the world. Change is coming, and it is coming fast! And all being well, it could be coming to a railway near you in two years time. If we get invited of course ;-)

We will be providing regular updates here on the progress at Leicester, with the next big milestone being the all important return to the mainline after nearly 20 years on preserved metals when she is towed to Leicester. The last time being the 20th Feb 1998!

Our donations page is always open, and if you can spare a few pennies towards this work, we really would appreciate it. http://www.c37lg.co.uk/donations.aspx

So once again, the future for 37003 is bright, and this doesn't mean it is going to be the first Europhoenix Splitbox :-D

Thanks again for your support over the years, and I hope that you stick with us to the finishing post.

The C37LG Committee.
