What is probably an 04 with the wasp stripes and the class 25 in two tone green with small yellow panel, both from 1961 onwards, until a BR blue repaint from 1968 onwards but often long delayed or may never have happened for these 'heading for the scrapper' types.

The class 37 in all over green is I believe a fiction in terms of BR operation. They came into service late 1961, after yellow end panels had become a requirement, so were introduced to traffic with SYP. Unlike big brother, the Deltic of which the first few examples came out in a very well designed two tone green in April 1961, with the yellow panel added quickly when in service.

Thanks, it was the '37 I was really interested in. I've got one that I want to re-detail and paint in the earliest possible livery.

Sorry for the thread hijack
