During February and March 2008 C.F Booths took delivery of a number of class 37s. The company has always been very helpful to preservationists looking for vital spare parts, and to enthusiasts in general, allowing guided visits to their site on Saturday mornings. As class 50s share a number of components with Class 37s, e.g. engine components, brake equipment, electrical switch gear and electrical machines, the opportunity was taken by RRRG to obtain a large number of components, which will be a significant help towards getting 50030 and 50029 operational again. 37519 is being cut on 1st March 2008.
