Order books open for new Heljan Mk.2 coaches

17 August 2021
Heljan has released images and open its order books for the eagerly-awaited Mk.2 coaches in O gauge.

The range covers many of the liveries worn across their lives, from introduction in the 1960s, right up to the present day. Four coach types are offered:

  • Tourist Second Open (TSO)
  • Brake Second Open (BSO)
  • Brake First Corridor (BFK)
  • First Corridor (FK)

Priced at £279.00 (RRP), the new models are available to order now from Heljan stockists (the majority currently offering a 15% discount) and are expected to arrive in Q1 next year.

Heljan has released the approved livery artwork, pictured below, and highly detailed interiors will also be a major feature of these new models, with authentic early Mk2 seating, partitions and luggage racks on view. The models have been designed to replicate either vacuum-braked Mk2 or air-braked Mk2a vehicles, giving customers the option to tailor their models to suit using customer-fit gangway end doors and underframe details.
