Special Cumbrian service to commemorate Class 37s
To commemorate the service of the Class 37s on the Cumbrian Coast, Northern and Direct Rail Services (DRS) have commissioned a farewell return journey between Carlisle and Carnforth on Friday 11 January.

The Class 37s were removed from service on the Coast and were replaced with DMU units on 28 December 2018.

The commemorative journey, on 11 January, will be the last chance for rail enthusiasts to ride on the 37s on this route, and to mark the occasion special keepsake tickets have been produced. All money raised from the event will be donated to local charities.

A maximum of 180 tickets – priced at £37 – are available for the event. To register your interest, please follow the below link and enter your details: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/2RD7FCJ

Please note, due to anticipated demand, we will select 180 names at random and contact each individual by Tuesday 8 January. Entries must be submitted by noon on Monday 7 January, entries submitted after this time will not be entered into the draw. Tickets are only available via this method.

The Special Train will depart from Carlisle at about 9.45am and will return via its outward route at around 4.15pm. Winning entrants will be sent a confirmation letter. Successful applicants must bring this letter, along with a cash payment of £37 and proof of ID on the day of the event.

Further information will be provided to successful entrants.
