90037 returns, 081014

90037 complete with new bogies and other embellishments returned to WCML use working 0A06 on Wed 081014.

Her return was after 8 years in storage at Crewe Works showing perhaps there is hope for the other stored 90’s

if DB find sufficient demand. 90017/22/23/25/27/30/31/32/33/38 and 40 remain in similar storage, lets hope

more return.

90037 was delivered new in April 90 being named “Spirit of Dagenham” on 190501. Nominally a Freight sector then EWS freight loco

she also worked Sleeper services plus regular hires to Virgin and Scotrail (for North Berwick). She was stored in late

Jan 2006. Good to see her back….
