On a damp and miserable, not to mention cold winters morning, 37262+37114 stand at Garve with 2K02 0655 Inverness-Kyle of Lochalsh on 20/12/1984 awaiting the arrival of 37025 on 2N12 0710 Kyle of Lochalsh-Inverness in order that they can gain the single line westwards. The reason for the pair of 37s was 37262 had a working RETB set but no train heat, and 37114 had train heat but no RETB set. The pairing provided a sensible solution to the problem of keeping the passengers warm and having a loco able to operate the RETB signalling.
