Heljan shows ‘O’ Mk 2 CAD drawings
Heljan has released the first CAD images of the new ‘O’ gauge Mk 2 coaching stock.
The specification calls for highly detailed interiors with authentic seating, partitions and luggage racks on view. To help showcase this, Heljan have designed the models to accept an easy-fit lighting bar which will be accessible using a magnet mounted roof.
The coaches will use Heljan’s new B4 bogies which will make their debut on its Mk 1 coach later this year. Both coach types will l be ideal companions for their vast array of BR diesel locomotives.
Ten liveries will be available initially covering BR blue and grey, ScotRail, Network SouthEast, Regional Railways, Trans-Pennine, ‘Hebridean’ green and cream, West Coast Railways maroon, DRS ‘Compass’ blue, InterCity Executive and Network Rail yellow. Not all vehicles will be produced in all colours.
Heljan is yet to announce prices or delivery dates, but promises an update later in the year.
