Class 83301 Zebedee and 73205 announced by model shop Kernow Model Rail Centre in a commission from Heljan.
Model shop and online retailer Kernow Model Rail Centre has commissioned Heljan to produce two Class 33/1s in new liveries, expected to arrive in December, 2019. The first model, 83301 nicknamed Zebedee worked as part of a test train formed in 1990 prior to the introduction of Eurostar units. It ran with 73205 London Chamber of Commerce, and Class 438 4-TC set number 8007. From the summer of 1991, it ran with two additional vehicles in NSE livery. 83301 will be produced with standard Heljan bogies because of tooling issues. The second model is 33117 in BR Blue livery with additional embellishments to the lamp brackets and buffers, also carrying the number D6536. Both models will be priced at £149 plus postage and orders are being taken on its website.
