This Class 37 diesel was totally an impulse buy. It showed up on the website of one of my favourite dealers in preowned British 7mm goodies and I couldn’t resist. While I had models of the Class 35 “Hymek” as a kid, it’s the Class 37 (English Electric Type 3) and Class 08 (Gronk) that are top of mind when I think of British diesels.
This 7mm model came pre-weathered. I’m not sure whether it was done by the manufacturer (Heljan), a retailer, or the customer – but it’s a nice job. It does not have a decoder – but I have one in stock, preloaded with a Class 37 sound package. I’ll install that when the mood strikes.
