Yes, this is the story:

ITALIAN MANUFACTURER VITRAINS, which entered the British outline 'OO' gauge RTR market in 2007 with a Class 37, has announced a range expansion that is headlined by the introduction of a new locomotive - a Class 47…

The model, priced around £80, will be to a similar specification as the Type 3, with central five-pole motor and directional lighting. It also features a finely detailed and accurately dimensioned bodyshell.

A pre-Christmas release is proposed for the model which will initially be available in two body variants formats as is obvious from the following running numbers:

November:
Class 47/4 47401 North Eastern (BR large logo blue)

December:
Class 47/7 47768 Resonant (Rail express systems red/grey)
Class 47/8 47844 Derby & Derbyshire Chamber of Commerce & Industry (InterCity Swallow)

ViTrains has also announced further Class 37 releases, some using its previously revealed tooling modifications, to create the Class 37/5 and Class 37/7 sub-class.

October:
Class 37/7 37710 (Loadhaul black/orange)

November:
Class 37/4 37417 Richard Trevithick (EWS maroon/gold)
Class 37/5 37505 & 37685 (InterCity Swallow) - limited edition twin pack

December:
Class 37/5 37512 Thornaby Demon (Railfreight grey)
