More Heritage Class 37 action was witnessed on Tuesday 27th July 2018 when Large Logo liveried Class 37 No. 37424 'Avro Vulcan XH558' hauled inspection saloon coach 'Caroline' through Somerset and into Devon.
The 5Z02 08:00 Crewe Gresty Bridge - Exeter St Davids passed Taunton around 14:10 and was captured at several locations on route through the area. The 28th will see the colourful combination heading to the most southerly point of the mainline rail network to Penzance from Exeter. The unique Class 37 is named after the Avro Vulcan XH558 and also carries the odd 37558 number on the body side, despite the locomotive actually being numbers 37424 'Avro Vulcan XH558'.
The locomotive returns to Crewe on Thursday 26th July at 09:40
