W&M Railbus amongst Heljan 'OO' models set to return
Heljan has announced a new selection of 'OO' gauge re-introductions including some long-absent models.
These new releases include the Waggon and Maschinenbau (W&M) diesel railbus, BR Class 07 diesel shunter, BR Class 14 0-6-0DH (previously a Hattons exclusive model) and BR Class 17 Bo-Bo diesels.
Heljan has also taken the opportunity to introduce some small improvements to the W&M diesel railbus which will now feature LED lighting and improved decoration, while the Class 17 Bo-Bo will also feature in a 'what if' livery, for the first time.
Spearheading these new re-introductions will be seven versions of the W&M railbus, including two in BR's Research Dpeartment colour schemes (see table below), eight new Class 07s, including an Army olive green version, seven Class 14s, including a train pack comprising Class 14 D9553 and four 'Dogfish' ballast hopper wagons, and six Class 17 Bo-Bo diesels, including a fictional version in BR Railfreight red-stripe livery (see table below for full details).
Prices are set at £179 for pristine DCC ready models, while weathered models are priced at £189 each. A special train pack containing Class 14 0-6-0DH D9553 in BR two-tone green, plus four 'Dogfish' ballast hoppers is priced at £329.
