Following on from Dapols 22,41 and Thumper DEMU we now have Heljan announcing a class 14 available through Hattons for 2009
I don't believe the page is up yet for pre ordering, but suspect that demand for this one may be high. If you want one get in quick. 1200 green ones don't seem too many to me.
"We are pleased to announce that we have begun preparation work for production of a run of OO gauge Class 14 locos, in partnership with Heljan and their UK representatives, Howes of Oxford
Provisionally we intend to produce 3 variants
1400 - BR Green as per mainline use. Running number to be confirmed. Run of approximately 1200
1401 - BR Blue - as per use on Channel Tunnel project in 1990's (whilst privately owned). Running number to be confirmed. Run of approximately 600
1402 - NCB private-owner livery. Running number to be confirmed. Run of approximately 600
We plan to accept pre-orders on all of these items, once the details have been finalised with Heljan. Any further information will be added to this page, as and when it becomes available. Delivery date of the locos has been tentatively pencilled in for May 2009"
