Although the last 75 or so EE Type 3s were delivered after the debut of the new British Rail 'corporate image' on Brush Type 4 D1733 in May 1964 all 309 locomotives were outshopped from Vulcan Foundary in BR green. Despite their relative youth, repaints into the new blue scheme were not uncommon before 1970 and a not insignificant number gained double arrows and Rail alphabet numbers on all four cabsides. D6992 was the highest numbered example, and was recorded in this livery variation - still with D-prefixed number - in the second half of 1969, just four years after debuting at 86A Cardiff Canton in July 1965 for freight work. It was redesignated as 37292 under TOPS and moved to Eastfield and then Motherwell in 1981, later receiving an experimental uprated 2,000hp 12CSVT same year. Incredibly this locomotive is still with us and even appeared in our first production run as DRS 'Regional Railways' heritage repaint 37425.
