Heljan confirms second batch of ‘OO’ Class 25s
Heljan has confirmed a second batch of its popular ‘OO’ gauge Class 25 Bo-Bo diesels (HM167) for later this year.
Hot-on-the-heels of its recent debut with retailers, a further eight models will appear with variations to their BR green and BR blue colour schemes, including the alternative blue and grey livery carried by electric train heating unit 97251 ETHEL 2.
These new models include D5243 in BR two-tone green with small yellow panels (Cat No. 2543), 25095 in BR blue with cab front numbers (2544), 97251 ETHEL 2 in BR blue and grey (alternative version) (2545), 25904 in BR blue (2546), 25301 in BR blue with ‘domino’ headcode boxes (2547), 7561 in BR two-tone green with full yellow ends (2548), 25323 in pre-1976 BR blue (2549) and 7513 in BR blue (2550).
This latest batch of Class 25s will also feature a number of minor modifications following feedback on the initial releases, including enhanced cab interior decoration, factory-installed speaker wiring for simpler digital sound installations and an additional pack of buffer beam detailing parts. Lighting functions will also be altered with the provision of independently switchable taillights on DCC, while the cab illumination will be left out.
Prices will remain at £179.99 each, with delivery expected later this year.
