HELJAN has just returned from a successful weekend at the Gauge 'O' Guild show in Telford where they were exhibiting for the first time. Their new 'O' gauge release, the class 35 'Hymek' in both BR green and early blue liveries, were well received by enthusiasts who attended the show and there is sure to be a big demand from larger scale modellers upon their release in November 2005. Both models will only be available in limited quantities and can be ordered through your local model shops. The RRP price is £475.00 each.
Heljan offer their thanks to all who visited their stand at Telford and for the encouraging comments received! The suggestions have been noted and will be considered when planning new production.
Plans are in place for another 'O' gauge release during 2006. This will be the NOHAB class MY diesel for the Scandinavien and German markets in 1:45 scale.
Heljan believe 'O' gauge is a market worth expanding into in the future and they look forward to offering further new models. With Bachmann and now Heljan entering the the ready to run UK outline O gauge market it will be interesting to see if other big manufacturers follow suit.
