The train used in the film in the robbery sequences is not the Number 37 like that in the real Great Train Robbery, it is a (reconstructed) Number 40 train. The locomotive was not a 'Number 40' it was a 'class 40'. The reference to being a 'number 37' is incorrect (a 'class 37' locomotive is a lesser powered loco from the same builder. Proper details are given below: The locomotive on the train involved in the Great Train Robbery was an English Electric type 4, class 40, locomotive number D326 (later 40126). By the time the film Buster was made D326 had been withdrawn from service and scrapped. Sister locomotive D306 (40106) - which was also withdrawn but had been preserved by enthusiasts on the Great Central Railway near Loughborough - substituted in robbery sequence of the film, which was filmed on the locomotive's home ground on the GCR.
