D9537 has a seized power unit which will require either repair or replacement, along with work to reverse 20 years of being out of use, the loco last ran on the Glouscestershire & Warkwickshire Railway in the early 1990's before being stopped with the power unit problem.
A little over 15 Months from arriving, D9537 returned to service on Friday 25th of July during the 14s@50 weekend, celebrating 50 Years of the Class 14 locomotives.
In 2015 D9537 starred at the Dean Forest Railway for their September Diesel Gala, joining up with classmates D9521 and D9555 once again. 'Eric' also travelled to the Ribble Steam Railway, Preston for their Diesel Gala Weekend in October, running with classmate D9539 again. The pair of 14s also had the great honour of hauling the prototype EE Deltic around the Ribble system, quite something!
Eric has recently had a full B Exam and, as of Mid-April 2017, has had small yellow warning panels added.
