2013 – 37215 racks up the miles

37215 ran 1541 miles in service in 2013 , its second highest mileage since it was preserved in 1994. Only the exceptional 'Year of the Gotherington Landslip' in 2010 when it worked 1678 miles (although half of which were being dragged as a tail locomotive) in which all GWR services had to be tailed by a diesel locomotive, was higher. This reflects the increase in diesel running in 2013 with 3 round trips between Toddington and Cheltenham being operated Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays between May and September.
