Heljan has shown progress on the CAD drawing works for its series of Pressed Steel and Gloucester Diesel Multiple Units (DMUs) for ‘O’ gauge covering the Class 117 three-car units as well as the Class 121 and 122 single DMUs. The range also incorporated the Class 149/150 driving trailer cars suitable to run with the Class 121 and 122 respectively.
Tooling for the models is now in progress and the Class 117 will be available in early and later formats with different buffers and exhausts while the Class 122 will have options for the front end layout. Heljan has also stated that work on the Class 120 Swindon cross-country units has been put on hold due to a lack of drawings and reference material.
Prices for the models are expected to start from £275 and Heljan is expecting to shown the latest progress on the DMU projects at the Warley National Model Railway Exhibition in November this year.
