37109 made its Gala debut at the July event of the same year and ran for 18 months or so before receiving a repaint into BR Blue. Always a popular performer, 37109 is run up often and is operational during the non-heat season and at Gala events.
37109 left the ELR during Summer 2013, visiting the Nene Valley Railway for their May Gala and spending a couple of months at the Severn Valley Railway before returning home to Bury in October.
Following installation of new batteries, October 2014 saw another visit to the Severn Valley Railway for 37109 along with fellow ELR resident, 50015 Valiant, for the SVR Diesel Gala.
Another visit to the Nene Valley Railway occurred in 2019 with 109 working at thier Diesel Event over the 11th-13th of October. Sadly 37109 wasn't able to run at the ELR Winter 2020 gala due to electrical problems. These have now been cured along with a few other jobs and 37109 is ready for action.
There are a wide range of events at the East Lancashire Railway ranging from Family and Education, Re-enactments, Sci-Fi, Transport and Collector's Fairs.
