The Italian firm plans to release the Class 37/0.
IN A SURPRISE move, ready-to-run manufacturer ViTrains has announced a 1980-90s period Class 37/0 to follow on from its refurbished Class 37/4 locomotive, along with two new liveries for the ETH-fitted machine.
Two Class 37s make up the initial run of the ’37/0′, which features the cut-away style of bufferbeam cowling; No. 37131 in BR Rail blue (V2037, limited to just 1,000 peices) and No. 37156 in Civil Engineer’s ‘Dutch’ grey and yellow livery with British Steel Hunterston name (V2026).
The two new refurbished Class 37/4s will be No. 37427 in the original style of EW&S maroon/gold livery with unofficial Bont-Y-Bermo painted name (V2019) and No. 37421 Strombidae, which wears the attractive Railfreight Petroleum sub sector colours (V2022).
RRP for all four models remains at £59.95, while delivery is planned for the third quarter of 2007.
