Heljan has updated its existing release schedule for 2022/2023 with a status report for each of its outstanding projects - including all-new models and re-issues of previously tooled models with new identities.
Despite global issues and a recent factory closure which has affected the development of some models, production continues apace with a raft of new releases expected during the summer with a new batch of 'OO' gauge Class 07 diesel shunters and the company's popular 'O' gauge Class 37/4s due shortly - some of which have already sold out from the company's warehouse.
Next on the horizon are Heljan's 'OO' gauge Class 14 0-6-0DH and Class 17 Bo-Bos, while the company's all-new BR Class 45 is currently in production and expected to arrive during September. The next batch of 'OO' gauge Class 25s are also in production, with an anticipated September arrival.
For 'O' gauge, Heljan's 'Catfish' and 'Dogfish' ballast hopper wagons are in production, with an early autumn arrival, while the all-new BR Mk 1 Covered Carriage Trucks (CCT) are also now in production, with a slated arrival during November.
