Colas Class 47 sample arrives

Painted samples of RAIL EXPRESS’ forthcoming Vitrains Class 47/7 twin-pack turn up in our office.

ViTrains Class 47/7

SHE LOOKS A stunner doesn’t she? Italian manufacturer ViTrains has provided a pre-production approval sample of the 4mm scale Class 47/7 No. 47749 Demelza in Colas Rail orange/yellow that it is manufacturing for us as part of our special edition twin pack. We are happy to report that it has done a splendid job in reproducing the distinctive eye-catching livery and rendering accurate body detail variations.

You will also note the correctly plated central bodyside steps, a new feature on this model. With the company taking a seasonal break during early August, we expect delivery in the next couple of months. The packs will, of course, also contain a presentation card and finely etched stainless steel name, works and shedplates. Orders have now closed on this ‘made to order’ item and a waiting list is in operation.
