Ahead of the next batch of the popular 0-6-0 diesel shunter, Heljan has released photos of the decorated samples.
This little Ruston & Hornsby 0-6-0DE has been the subject of two previous production runs since 2018, but demand continues to be strong for BR, industrial and preserved versions.
The new batch, for early-2022 release, includes representatives of all three sectors, plus a British Army green locomotive inspired by the similar Ruston-built locomotives used on internal railways such as the Bicester Military Railway.
Please note V1 models are vacuum braked 'as built' locomotives. V2 models feature high-level air pipes and compressor compartments.
Seven versions are in preparation with a Suggested Retail Price of £179 each (£189 weathered editions).
