Accurascale OO Scale Class 37 – 37218 in DRS (Heritage Repaint)

The highlight of the Direct Rail Services’ annual open day in 2022 – the first such event since 2019 – was the official unveiling of 37218 in a ‘heritage’ livery backdating the centre headcode machine to its original DRS paint scheme with rectangular branding that it wore after departing Brush Traction, Loughborough in 2002. This was one of five Class 37/0s to be put through a significant refurbishment in the early 2000s, which included extensive reworking to the nose ends with WIPAC light clusters, top headlight and DRS multiple working equipment as well as a full cab upgrade with new control desk and soundproofed partition to bring them up to an almost identical specification to the operator’s Class 37/6 locos that featured heavily in our first production run. Although initially outshopped with plated headcode boxes still extant this was removed on its repaint into the ‘fade’ scheme in 2014 and the Accurascale model will correctly feature the smoothed-off nose, toughened windscreens and welded long-range fuel tank of the real thing.
