Heljan withdraws from TT:120 market

13 October 2022
Citing duplication of subjects as its reason, the manufacturer is to cease its plans to produce 1:120 scale models.

In a social media post via its Facebook page earlier today (October 13), Heljan made public its decision to withdraw from the TT:120 scale market. Its plans for a Brush Type 2 (later Class 31) announced this summer, with other models – including a Class 08 – to follow it are therefore halted.

The news follows the announcement by Hornby to enter the TT:120 market with a comprehensive initial range of models.

The post read as follows:

What a shame that Heljan are not going to support the 'new' scale. This will be a blow to Peco who, finally, are producing properly scaled track. If only they would do the same for 7mm and 4mm scales!

Interesting comment "and on supporting the crucial network of UK model railway retailers, who continue to be the backbone of the hobby and an essential resource for the modelling community." A subtle dig at Hornby and well said Heljan!
