Hello,
I'd have to buy a FGW Class 57, what you recommend me between Heljan and Bachmann, please?

I have a Bachmann 57 602 "Restormel Castle" and it is a very good model. I haven't seen any reviews of the Heljan model, so I'm not sure if they have fixed the overscale width which the 47 suffered with.
The other consideration is the cost. A Bachamann 57 FGW can be bought for £45 the Heljan one is around £63 so you pays your money etc etc..

QUOTE (spamcan61 @ 26 Oct 2006, 16:42) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>rails of sheffield are selling off the Heljan ones for under 40 quid, although I'd rather have the Bachmann, the info might be useful to some.The offer is on their home page.

Thank You, but I've found (and bought) on e-bay two new Bachmann FGW and Freightliner Class 57 at 42.00 GBP, I think that it has been a good price.
