he British Rail Class 37 is a diesel-electric locomotive, originally known as the English Electric Type 3. The class was ordered under the British Rail modernisation plan of the late 1950s, and delivered between 1960 and 1965; 309 locomotives were built by English Electric at Vulcan Foundry and Robert, Stephenson & Hawthorns at Darlington. They were originally numbered in the series D6600-D6608 and D6700-D6999.

The Class 37 was a familiar sight on many parts of the British Rail network, in particular forming the main motive power for InterCity services in East Anglia and on Scottish Region. They also performed well on secondary and inter-regional services for many years. The Class 37s are known to some railway enthusiasts as 'Tractors', due to the distinctive agricultural sound of the diesel engine of the locomotive.

Despite all members of the build now being over 50 years old, nearly 40 locomotives are still mainline registered and remain active undertaking a variety of passenger, freight and departmental duties on the national rail network in 2020.
