Here are details of the latest new releases due from Vitrains over the next 3 months.

Vitrains have now developed the 37 moulds to encompass the 37/7 'Heavyweights' with the distinctive flush fronted nose ends and modified body sides.

Exallent models. Wonder if they are looking at a different loco to produce.

I think the Class 37's are getting a little over produced, as each of the big manufacturers make them...

Good drivetrain, but not so accurate as a model.
Value? Well they are about a fiver less than the better Bachmann 37.
You pays yer money and yer makes yer choice.....

As for other manufacturers making them.....?
Hornby just have their old Triang-based toy and the better ex-Lima model in their Railroad range, but these really are nowhere near good enough for serious modelling, in the present day.
It's basically Bachmann or ViTrains.

What is the minimum radius that the VI trains class 37 will negotiate ?

The smallest radius on my layout is 18" (2nd radius) and my ViTrains 37 has no problem with this. I can't vouch for any smaller radii as I don't have any!
