Heljan Announce New Class 86/2 Range!

Posted by Warren Bennett on

A third variant of Heljan's popular ‘OO’ gauge Class 86 is now in preparation for release in 2023. In response to public demand, the Class 86/2 will join the recent ‘AL6’ and Class 86/4 in the HELJAN range.
Two versions will depict the 100mph passenger/parcels ‘86s’ in late-1970s to mid-1980s guise prior to the addition of headlights/TDM cables and for the late-1980s onwards with high-intensity headlights and TDM cables. The latter will be available with either Faiveley or Brecknell-Willis pantographs.

This all-new model has been produced in response to strong demand from OO gauge modellers of AC electrics and provides a perfect companion to our earlier Class 86s. Eight liveries will be available from Heljan with a further special edition of 86235 Novelty in ‘Rainhill 150’ livery available from Gaugemaster Collection.

Standard features will match the demanding requirements of today’s OO gauge modeller, including a 21-pin DCC interface, LED lighting with independently switchable tail light function, provision for DCC sound, sprung buffers, highly detailed underframe and bogies and much more.


Engineering prototypes are expected in the UK for review in early-2023. Heljan hope to deliver the first batch of Class 86/2s in late-2023
