Pathfinder ran a tour from Newport to Portsmouth Harbour in December 2013. Originally billed as being hauled by duffs, it was changed to 37s (various reasons including poor bookings were doing the rounds). Highlight being that it would be top and tailed from Salisbury to Portsmouth Harbour so a single loco in each direction. 37261 and 37405 were the featured nags.

37261_Salisbury

37261 running round at Salisbury with the DMU depot on the right hand side. 37261 would lead into Portsmouth Harbour.

37261_PortsmouthH

37261 waiting for departure from Portsmouth for Eastleigh and then onto the depot for a double runround.

37405_Salisbury

Waiting for 37261 to be added to the front, 37405 at Salisbury. It provided ETH on the return due to a broken (again) generator car.
