These 'next generation' models represent the start of a new era as they will be the first heavy duty Heljan O gauge models to be released with plug-and-play DCC capability using the ESU LokSound XL decoder. They also feature switchable lighting functions (with microswitches for DC users and separate lighting functions in DCC mode), engine room, cab and tail lights and a host of optional detail parts, allowing you to tailor your model to specific locomotives and time periods.
A comprehensive suite of detail variations includes original or plated cab doors, Inverness style and late-1980s NRN cab radio pods, a removable engine room window on each side as per the prototype, etched brass horn covers, a full set of headcode discs, miniature snowploughs, tablet catcher arms and a set of tapered bogie footsteps to give you the option of modelling locos which received steps from Class 26/0s.
