37032 first engine start since 2004
Following withdrawal from traffic on the North Norfolk Railway in 2004, English Electric Type 3 37032 (D6732), has been undergoing an overhaul, including all major components in the loco, and complete re-skinning of the bodywork. On Sunday 27th June, the engine was successfully started for the first time since 2004, following a comprehensive overhaul. A fair amount of work still remains to be done on other parts of the loco, but this event was definitely a major milestone in returning it to traffic, hopefully in the spring of 2012.
