Heljan O Gauge Saloon Coaches

Posted by Warren Bennett on

News on the Heljan O Gauge Saloon coaches are now at a tooling stage. CAD has been completed and the tools are now being designed ready for the first engineering prototypes. Final models expected in 2023.


As the images demonstrate, this model will feature a superbly detailed interior, underframe and bogies, including many fine details - right down to the umbrella stands in the corridor!
Models will be available with a range of detail combinations, ranging from original LMS condition to BR vehicles with roof-mounted horns and ETH equipment. Most will feature the newly-designed LMS bogies, but the ScotRail saloon will ride on our existing B4 bogies.
In a change to the previously announced specification, the saloon has been designed to accept the easy-fit LED interior lighting bar.
The detachable roof, held in place with strong magnets, can simply be removed and the light bar dropped into place so that models can be fitted with lights in just a few seconds.
12 models being produced as part of this batch with final prices to confirm in the near future:

#9101 BR crimson/cream (black ends)
#9102 BR lined maroon (black ends)
