This print takes us back to the bustling atmosphere of Bristol Temple Meads in the early 1960s. Standing tall and proud is the Class 37 Diesel Locomotive No. D6882, also known as the English Electric Type 3. This powerful locomotive was built at the renowned Vulcan Foundry in Newton-le-Willows between 1960 and 1965. The Class 37s were versatile workhorses that served both passenger and freight services for several decades until the 1990s. With their distinctive design and robust performance, these locomotives became a familiar sight on Britain's railways during this era. In this snapshot, we witness D6882 amidst its daily duties at one of Britain's most iconic railway stations. The hustle and bustle of passengers going about their journeys adds an air of excitement to the scene.

Preserved by STEAM Museum of GWR (Great Western Railway), this print serves as a nostalgic reminder of a bygone era when trains like Class 37 Diesel Locomotive No. D6882 played an integral role in connecting communities across Britain's vast railway network.
