Just received my 37 in EWS colours, excellent runner for the few mins it's had tonight. Can't wait for the metals sector one to arrive. I've even prepared a rake of wagons for it to pull already.

After its run in I'll comment further but so far so good.

Having run this in now the loco is even better. It's so quiet and smooth. All you can hear is the sound of the rails.

Lights work both ways and correctly too, and pulling power is very good. Slow speed creep is getting better with use, currently 50 secs per yard of flexi without stalling. This is on dc with a single power feed.

Here is it coupled to some of Farish's superb Seacows.

I just think that a layout isn't right if there's no 37. I'm gradually replacing my Poole versions (but not all) with the latest ones. Missed out somehow on 37431 but I'm hoping to pick it up somewhere. I'll just need to remove the name and it'll be perfect for the north of Scotland.

Quite an expense and not one I will be taking. Let me know if you are reducing your stock, I need some Poole chassis.

I was about to buy 371452. Apart from weathering anyone know if the new model 371455 offers anything new that makes it worth waiting until october release ?

Meh, split gear on 37238 (371-452, 2007 production) after being in storage for about a year...  :veryangry:

The installed lighting is far far too bright. Tail lights in particular. Dapol's lights on HST and western plus Grafar Warship, Deltic and 47 are ok?
I dont fancy installing a resistor but may add a diffuser to the light tube?

Picked up the 37 in Dutch livery. DCC ready. Ran it in 30 minutes, both ways. Smooth and very quiet right out of the box.

Hooked it up to 8 N gauge coaches...of course easy.

Added 11 North American N scale cars...still no problem.

Looks are crisp...beautiful.

Love the directional lighting.

I reserve the right to change my mind later, but right now this is a great model.

I picked up my latest 37 recently, a dutch class 37, 37133.

I think its a cracking model but it is not as well finished as the previous release in dutch livery, 37035.

The yellow bodyside stripe seems a little unfinished (lacking in intensity) and has a fuzzy top edge compared to 37035 and the orange cantrail stripe is missing. Apart from that it runs well and looks the part..

Cheers
Mark

I may have missed it in another post somewhere but if not, Kernow have commissioned Farish to make 37207 William Cookworthy in blue with all the Cornish Railways trappings in a limited edition of 512. Available soon, apparently!

Scottmitchell74's post on his purchase of one of these pushed me over the edge to buy one of these 37s from Rails. Including post to Oz the price was less than 70 so the price was right. I have the Saltire Society. The paint job and detail on this loco are magnificent. It is the equal of anything I've seen in N gauge in these respects and exceeds most models. The loco has just completed 2 hours of running in, but even out of the box it still ran well down to very low speeds. Big tick here. My only concern is that it is noisy even now. There is wheel noise (or gear whine perhaps) and a hint of a throbbing sound on top of this. The noisiness of this loco has been reported earlier in this thread. The sound is not unpleasant and I'm hoping that this is normal and that it will either diminish or more importantly not be symptomatic of a problem.

Here's one George. @Bealman

Sorry for taking a while. I've decided the loco's noisiness is nothing to worry about. I'm a big fan of this loco for running as well as looks.
