Final journey of the Class 37, 2Z37 & 2Z38

Friday 11th January saw the final journey of the Class 37, 2Z37 & 2Z38 driven by Northern driver Martin Tweddle took passengers on this farewell return journey between Carlisle and Carnforth, commissioned by Northern and Direct Rail Services (DRS). The commemorative journey was the last chance for 180 rail enthusiasts to ride the 37s on this route, to mark the occasion special keepsake tickets were produced. All money raised from the event was donated to local charities. Introduced in May 2015, the Class 37 diesel locomotives hired in from Direct Rail Services served the public of Cumbria up to 28 December 2018, eventually being replaced with DMU units.
