HOT ON THE heels of its first two Class 37/4 models, ViTrains has released a second pair of locomotives, #2014 No. 37403 Glendarroch in non-standard Railfreight Distribution livery and #2015 No. 37423 Sir Murray Morrison in InterCity Mainline colours.
The new models show some subtle alterations over the first batch, which came in for some criticism due to the unpainted yellow front ends and less than secure fit of the body on the chassis. Both of these issues have now been corrected. However, the packaging is still less than sufficient to protect some of the more fragile details like the horns, which arrived damaged on these two releases.
Two more liveries are still due to be produced from the first six announced, No. 37411 Caerphilly Castle in BR green and No. 37422 Cardiff Canton in EWS maroon/gold, while ViTrains is apparently due to announce a further eight colour schemes for the Class 37/4 in late April.
