Fours reviews the history of the Class 37/4 since its creation in 1985/86.
Although the 31 locos featured heavily at first on the work for which they were created - passenger services in Scotland and Wales - changing traffic trends spead them across England, too, in later years, on both passenger and freight workings.
It was appropriate, then, that the newly-formed English, Welsh & Scottish Railway should acquire them in 1995, opening up a further period of useful operation until the present day in 2009 and, perhaps, beyond.
