37025 crossing a river bridge near Lochluichart, November 1984

A Class 37 diesel, 37025, on a passenger train crossing the bridge over the outflow from Mossford Hydro Electric Power Staion east of Lochluichart station. This was part of the diversion of the line when the dam was built in the 1950s.

37025 was built by English Electric in 1961. It was withdrawn from mainline service in 1999 and in 2000 was purchased by The Scottish Thirty-Seven Group. In 2007 it ran for the first time on the Bo'ness and Kinneil Preserved Railway.

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.
