Heljan enters ‘TT’ market


Heljan has revealed plans for an all-new British 1:120 scale ‘TT’ range with the launch of a newly-tooled Class 31/1 A1A-A1A diesel locomotive.

The announcement comes days after Peco unveiled plans for a new ‘TT:120’ track system and range of accessories.


CAD work for Heljan’s new British 1:120 scale Brush Type 2 is already at an advanced stage of development, with the project set to progress to tooling shortly.

Six different ‘TT’ Class 31s have been announced – in Digital Command Control (DCC) ready and DCC sound-fitted formats - as D5637 in BR green (Cat No. 3160/31603), D5847 in BR green with small yellow warning panels (3161/31613), 5820 in BR green with full yellow ends (3162/31623), 31136 in BR blue with headcodes (3163/31633), 31198 in BR blue with domino headcodes (3164/31643) and 31970 in Railway Technical Centre (RTC) red/grey/black/white (3165/31653). Later period models in refurbished condition are also planned for the future, subject to demand.


Heljan's models will feature Next18 DCC decoder socket, factory-fitted speakers and LED lighting.

Further models are expected to be added to the range – a Hunslet ‘Austerity’ 0-6-0ST and BR Class 08 diesel shunter have already been identified as possible contenders.


The model is priced at £199 for DCC ready models, while DCC sound-fitted pricing has yet to be confirmed. Delivery is expected in late 2023.
