Heljan 'O' Gauge Class 45.

HJ45xx.

Several years ago Heljan produced the original Class 45 Peak and have now decided to produce the later, refurbished Class 45 / 0 and 45/1. Fully revised and updated the new Class 45 ‘Peak’ has sealed beam nose ends, plug-and-play DCC interface and improved lighting features. The models will be available as steam heat Class 45/0 and Electric Heat Class 45/1 variants, the latter with the option of high intensity headlights for late- 1980s modellers

We have had the first undecorated test sample images, we should see the decorated samples around the end of the year and we expect these models to be released in the second half of 2023. Standard features include an XL decoder interface, space for a large speaker and smoke unit, twin motors/flywheels, independently switchable cab, tail and headlights and superb fine detail throughout.

We still have a small number of the Tower Models Limited Edition all green examples of the original model but numbers of these are low but available for immediate despatch

We are taking advance orders for these now and we are as always offering our numbering and weathering service as well if required. Advance ordering is highly recommended as demand has been extremely high for these.

Custom numbered, named and weathered all green Class 45 recently completed through the workshop
