Anglia's Class 37/4 ‘EACH Express’ raises £20,000 for charity

Organisers and staff with the 'EACH Express' charter at London Liverpool Street on April 30. AL PULFORD.

A charity charter train organised by Abellio Greater Anglia raised more than £20,000 for the Each Anglia Children’s Hospice (EACH) on April 30.

Using Direct Rail Services Class 37/4s and Mk 2s that AGA hires from DRS for its local services, the ‘EACH Express’ ran from Norwich to Ely and back, before then running to London Liverpool Street and return. The usual formation of top and tailed ‘37s’ and three carriages was boosted by a fourth coach supplied by DRS.
