Heljan have released LNER 'O2' 2-8-0 Tango Artwork! Pre order today, prices start at £169.15.
The extensive range of OO Gauge locomotives have been due a update for some time but development has been delayed due to disruptions caused by the pandemic and a changeover in warehouse.
Thirteen versions expected to be released later this year featuring Great Northern Railway, LNER and BR liveries.
Most will have the new GNR cabs (original and low height versions) and GNR tender, but these are just a couple of the numerous detail variations that have been designed into this complex tooling. Other new and existing detail differences include:
- Low running plate
- 2x different chimneys

- 2x smokebox door designs
