New locomotive exhibit arrives at 1: 1 museum project in Margate – The Isle Of Thanet News

Class 37 locomotive, 37 190 arrives at Margate Photo John Horton

By John Horton

After a lull of about 14 months, another locomotive arrived for the 1: 1 museum project in the old goods receiving building on the former Hornby factory site.

The last locomotive to arrive was just before the pandemic when a Eurostar Driving car and a trailer car were delivered. During the pandemic, the only surviving “Beaver Tail” Coronation Observation Trainer was also delivered. It is understood that the restoration of this lone survivor cost over £ 1million.

The newcomer entered the site around 5:30 p.m. yesterday (August 3) on an Allelys Heavy Haul trailer, after getting off the Severn Valley Railroad at Bewdley. The exhibition is a locomotive of the 37, 37 190 series, in blue BR livery with solid yellow ends, with double brake (empty and air) and is fitted with frost protection grilles above the radiators and snow plow under the buffer beam.

37 190 was fitted with a central head code panel when built in 1964, by Robert Stephenson and Hawthorn Limited, and entered service as D6890 in the British Railways Green livery. It was assigned to Swansea Landore Depot, in 1973 under British Rail’s TOPS computer system, the locomotive was renumbered to 37,190.

On November 29, 1981, the locomotive left the West region and headed for Scotland at Eastfield Depot. A little less than a year later, he was transferred to Motherwell Depot. Locomotives of this type were required for steel traffic around Motherwell and it was renumbered again to 37,314 and named “DALZELL” after local steel mills. Exceeding requirements, it was stored in 1992 and officially withdrawn from service in 1993, in Large Logo livery at the time.

It was purchased for storage and transferred to the Midland Railway Center in Butterly. Renumbered to 37,190 and in the BR Blue livery, the locomotive performed numerous tasks on the Severn Valley Railway. However, in 2020 it developed a major engine failure and was sidelined, seemingly never to run again.

It left Bewdley early yesterday morning for the Jeremy Hoskins 1: 1 museum.

37190 is a CO-CO locomotive (each axle is powered) 3 axles per bogie, weighs 102 tons and has a fuel capacity of 890 imperial gallons, powered by an English Electric 12CSVT engine, with a top speed of 90 mph. It is a Type 3 diesel that develops 1,750 hp – often called “tractors” by enthusiasts because of their agricultural sound.

The 1: 1 museum is still under development and is not open to the public at this time. Its opening is scheduled for the next 24 months.

Locomotive Storage, which operates a storage and maintenance business of classic railway locomotives and heritage rolling stock, is converting its buildings to create the impressive Museum of British Railway Heritage.

The company purchased the former Hornby factory and warehouse in February 2017 and already stores rolling stock on the property which is adjacent to the Hornby offices, showrooms and visitor center.

Locomotive storage at Margate moves forward with One to One railway collection museum
