“Dear HELJAN customer
Following from our usual ‘big’ diesel policy we are pleased to announce two new models to enhance our range
Hunslet BR class 05 ‘D2574’ diesel shunter
Our model will be based on the type A variant and at present the following models are planned:-
2590 – BR plain green
2591 – BR green with ‘wasp’ ends
2592 – BR blue with ‘wasp’ ends
2593 – Industrial yellow livery
2594 – Industrial dark blue livery
2595 – Industrial maroon livery
All will be unnumbered and whilst we realise some are fictitious liveries, we feel they are worth including for those modellers who wish to operate an industrial element on their layout.
CAD has been approved for this project and we are awaiting the first test samples for evaluation
SRP is expected to be £ with release planned for
BR class 03 ‘D2000’ diesel shunter
This model is currently in development and will reflect an as-built vacuum braked example.
Versions will include both ‘conical’ and ‘flowerpot’ exhausts and will reflect all the livery options.
At this early stage there is no SRP or release date.”
Please note the SRP and release date for the ’05’s were left blank on the email. Once this info is known we will update.
If any of these locos are of interest please contact us.
