Two Class 37 diesel locomotives, 37221 and 37157, on the 'Cock o'the North' special at Muir of Ord in April 1994.

37221 was built by English Electric in 1964. Its last use on mainline railways came in October 1998. 37157 was built by English Electric in 1963. Its last mainline use was in 2003 after which it was put on English, Welsh and Scottish Railway's Tactical Reserve list.

A total of 309 Class 37 diesel locomotives were built for British Railways between 1960 and 1965. They are sometimes referred to as English Electric Type 3 locos and nicknamed 'Tractors' due to the distinctive sound of their exhausts.
