'O' gauge 60 collection expands
Three additional locomotives have been added to the list of new Class 60s from Heljan for ‘O’ gauge with a pair of Gaugemaster Collection releases as well as an exclusive limited edition for Kernow Model Rail Centre.
The second production run of Heljan 7mm scale Class 60s is due for release this autumn using the same tooling as the first batch from 2016 (HM103).
Expanding the Class 60 choice further is Kernow Model Rail Centre’s second ready-to-run limited edition model capturing 60040 The Territorial Army Centenary in DB Schenker branded maroon. This locomotive was named in June 2008 at the National Railway Museum and the KMRC model will represent the Class 60 in the condition in which it was named with silver buffers, pipework picked out on the bogies and a pristine finish.
Two further Class 60s have been added to the Gaugemaster Collection modelling the two engines painted in British Steel blue in the late 1990s – 60006 Scunthorpe Ironmaster (Cat No. GM7240203) and 60033 Tees Steel Express (GM7240204).
The price for all of the new batch of Heljan Class 60s is £699 per locomotive.
