Heljan gets Heavy
Heljan’s ‘O’ gauge range continues to grow with another heavyweight – the Class 56. The Danish company is to produce the Br-built version (56070-135) with fine detail, twin motors, LED lights, see-through grilles and sprung buffers. Heljan is also to include easy DCC conversion and sound installation, as well as provision for a smoke unit. Eight liveries are planned: BR blue, ‘Large Logo’ blue, Railfreight ‘Large logo’, Railfreight ‘Red Stripe’, Railfreight ‘triple grey’ unbranded, Railfreight Coal Sector, Railfreight Construction Sector, and Loadhaul. The ‘56’ is due to arrive in 2020. Prices have yet to be confirmed.
