DVD No.5 includes:
The EWS Years: It was April 1996 when 37057 'Viking' became the first Class 37 to be painted into the maroon and gold livery of EWS. Combining the former Loadhaul, Transrail and Mainline freight companies together, a total of 63 locos went on to receive this livery over the next eight years. Numerous locos across all sub classes are featured here, hauling a mixture of freight, passenger trains and Railtours countrywide.
Preservation: A visit to the Great Central Railway and 37714 in its striking grey Trainload livery with Metals branding is filmed working the diesel diagram.
Scotland: Action from the winter and spring of 2018 with four very different workings: 37884 on an EMU move, 37059+37069 on a rail drop train; 37259+37605 on a charter to Kyle and 37099+37254 on IM duties.
37407 & 37409: After a period of uncertainty the 37/4 operational fleet was boosted with the return of 407 and 409 during summer 2018 - both painted in the Large Logo livery! 37409 is filmed with 'Caroline' on Merseyrail's Southport line!
Cumbrian Coast: Footage from the winter and early spring of 2018 with two diagrams still in operation and locos 37401, 37402, 37403 and 37424 with 402 and 424 in the snow!
