Not sure which site you consulted but grahamfarish.co.uk says it is "still to come" with no expected date. Other products have dates up to March next year (and these often slip back) so it's a fairly safe bet that it is at least six months off. It could be much longer.
I am no expert on British locos classes especially steam types but is the ivatt not a 2-6-2 configuration if so i have had the Dapol type known as the 45XX its a superb little runner and really easy to convert to DCC ......or does the MT version differ ?
The 45XX's are always coming up on Ebay for a lot less than the Grafar is going to be many a time new in their boxes.
