Former DRS Class 37/6 No. 37611 'Pegasus' is now owned and operated by Europhoenix. The locomotive is often hired by other train operating companies. On the night of the 23rd August 2017 the locomotive was in use with Colas Rail Freight working a Network Rail Test Train. No. 37611 'Pegasus' is pictured in Platform 4, Taunton at 04:00 in the morning, while working the 3Z22 23:26 (Thurs) Bristol High Level to Cardiff Canton via Exeter St Davids.

2nd August 2017
Europhoenix Class 37/8 No.37800 made a very rare appearance in Taunton on the 2nd August 2017. The locomotive was used by Rail Operations Group (ROG) for Lorum Route Learning to Plymouth. The locomotive worked from Derby to Taunton (but continued to Plymouth without taking recess at Taunton as timings suggested). Having visited Plymouth the locomotive returned light engine to stable at Taunton overnight before returning to Derby on the 3rd August. 37800 is probably one of the most well traveled Class 37's currently operating on the UK rail network, it has spent time both in France and Spain on contract hire helping to construct various TGV routes in either country. The locomotive was repatriated in 2015 where it was restored and return to traffic for Europhoenix. 37800 is pictured here passing 40 Steps, Taunton.
