Heljan reveals new model and re-releases in 2021 catalogue

11 December 2020
The manufacturer reveals plans for an O gauge LMS 50ft inspection saloon in its new year model catalogue.

Heljan's 2021 new model range catalogue is on-sale via its network of retailers. Highlighted inside are re-runs of its previously unavailable items, with new liveries and a previously unannounced model for O gauge – an LMS 50ft inspection saloon.

In development for release in 2022 with prices yet to be confirmed, Heljan has said the model will feature DCC-controlled interior lighting, detailed saloons and LMS or B4 bogies, dependent on era/livery. No fewer than 12 liveries are planned, spanning the LMS, BR and Privatisation eras. An ideal single vehicle train for layouts of all sizes, it will complement the range of locomotives available from Heljan.

Also confirmed is a re-run of its OO gauge Cargowaggon IWB bogie van in both standard and new liveries – including Colas/Tarmac and Blue Circle Cement. In response to customer demand, it will be joined in 2021 by a new run of the OO gauge IGA bogie flat in Cargowaggon, Corus Rail and, for the first time, RailAdventure livery – the last-mentioned offered as a twin pack with authentic concrete ballast weights to complement the IWB barrier wagon pack released earlier this year.

Extra versions of the new LNER ‘O2’ 2-8-0 have been included in the production run now in preparation, adding further combinations of the GNR/LNER cabs and tenders, livery variations and two weathered BR editions.
