37427 in the 80's

Class 37 37427

Recommended Posts

Not long back i made a purchase of the Class 37, 37427 Bont Y Bermo in Large logo blue livery. My layout is intended to be set in the mid 80's, And somewhere in Wales but i am unsure what livery 37427 carried in that period and where it was allocated.. I'm aware that 37427 was a Cardiff canton engine but i am unsure if it still was in lets say the 1984 - 88 period or if it was allocated elsewhere.


If anybody could help me out that would be great.

Thanks - Willow.

The large logo livery is perfect or your time frame.


It would have worked passenger services all across South Wales from Bristol TM to Fishguard, up the Welsh marches to Crewe, Liverpool and Manchester and the Aberystwyth/Phwelli trains from Shrewsbury.


Later in life it wore Regional Railways and EWS liveries but well after your 84-88 time period.
