Heljan details 12 versions of its upcoming OO-gauge Derby/Sulzer Type 2s
Development work is well advanced on Heljan’s latest OO-gauge BR diesel locomotive project – the popular Derby/Sulzer Type 2 in its final Class 25/3 guise.
The model will benefit from the research and development that has gone into the firm’s forthcoming O-gauge Class 25/3 that’s due for release later this year, and is expected to make rapid progress towards a first release in 2019.
In typical Heljan fashion, a dozen versions have been selected, covering a broad cross-section of BR green, BR blue and special liveries, and offering a choice of London Midland, Scottish and Western Region prototypes from the mid-1960s until the late 1990s.
The model represents the final development of the 478 Derby/Sulzer Type 2s, which started with Class 24 in the late 1950s. The Heljan model will cover the D5238-99 and D7500-D7677 batches, built by Derby Works and Beyer Peacock of Manchester between December 1963 and April 1967.
