RTR O Gauge locomotives.

LOCOMOTIVE SPECIFICATION.

Heljan Class 47.

The Class 47 has been synonymous with the UK railway scene since their introduction in 1962. The Heljan 'O' gauge class 47 was originally released back in 2006 and they feel it is now worth re-visiting and so development is now well underway on a completely re-tooled model. 

The Class 47 was BR's most numerous main line diesel and was employed on all kinds of trains from names expresses to unfitted mineral trains. Built from 1961 onwards they provided BR with a powerful locomotive that was both lighter and more versatile than its predecessors

Heljan announced the production of the Class 47 in January 2018 and have now finalised the details on the all new tooling of the Class 47. There will be two versions; the 'as-built' Brush type 4 / Class 47 covering the 1960's and 1970's and later variant covering the 1980's and 1990's; both will feature 'full' rather than 'cut-away' bufferbeams, but will incorporate a number of detail differences reflecting some of the many changes/developments the class has been through during their long life.

These are now available and have been selling very quickly with stocks running low already.

Work has already begun on a early 2023 second production run which will include two Tower Models Limited Editions covering the early version as Stratford engines with the grey roof and also featuring the Dominoe headcodes. The first option is a fully finished example of 47170 "County of Norfolk" in BR blue with the black window surround and then secondly the standard BR blue with grey roof un-numbered which the customer could complete as any of the other Stratford engines. Both of these will feature the black dominoe headcodes and we should have the colour layours for both of these in the next few weeks.

We expect to have final confirmation details of the standard models that are also being released soon. Details of these can be found at the bottom of this page. I know most of what Heljan have been talking about but would rather wait on Heljan to announced them officially. We are taking advance orders for these now including the Gaugemaster Limited Edition that has also been announced.
