Heljan announce the return of the O gauge Class 40


Back by popular demand, Heljan's English Electric Type 4/Class 40 returns, but this time as the centre headcode variant, as seen on the last 55 members of the class (D345-399).

Design and tooling work was completed recently and the first running samples will be delivered to the UK for testing in early-November.

Five liveries will be available from mid-2020, covering the entire BR career of the class.

The models will feature a ‘DCC Friendly’ chassis, LED lighting, a heavy duty chassis with twin motors and flywheels and fine detail specific to these later-built EE Type 4s.
