Heljan’s O-gauge Class 50 at early prototype stage

Although its Danish manufacturers have already identified a few areas for improvement, Heljan’s forthcoming O-gauge Class 50 diesel-electrics are already looking good.

While the release is still awaited, it has been announced that the suggested retail price will be £699.

The intricate detail that O gauge allows is already apparent on Heljan’s Class 50 prototype — and by the time the various production versions go on sale at just under £700 they should be just about perfect.

Six versions will be produced for sale through Heljan stockists, along with two limited-edition exclusives for Hatton’s Model Railways (Departmental blue and ‘Dutch’ 50015).
