More "Hoovers" from Heljan

Heljan has added new models to its Class 50 O gauge line-up due to popular demand.

Even before they'd arrived in the UK, some of the second batch of 7mm scale locomotives was fully allocated and as a result, Heljan are producing additional quantities of the most popular BR Large Logo models and have taken the opportunity to add more models, celebrating old favourites and new adventures for these cult classic EE Type 4s, to the range.

After securing an earlier-than-expected production slot, they expect them to arrive in the UK in December - hopefully in time for Christmas.

Prices have been held at the same level as the first two batches, with pristine locos at £699 and factory weathered editions at £729.

Thanks to Hanson & Hall Rail Services, Haljan are able to add the latest chapter in the Class 50 story to the range, with 50008 "Thunderer" in its new grey livery, unveiled just last month. This up-to-the-minute livery is likely to be highly sought after.
