Product description

Catering for the growing interest in British narrow-gauge modelling, Heljan's second British OO9 locomotive will allow modellers to complete their Lynton & Barnstaple Railway locomotive fleet. Lyn was built by Baldwin in 1898 for the L&BR and shipped to Devon in kit form for assembly at Pilton Works. At the time, the railway needed additional motive power but Manning, Wardle was unable to supply a similar machine to those already in service (and available in December/January OO9 from HELJAN!). A superb full-size replica of Lyn was recently completed for the restored Lynton & Barnstaple Railway in North Devon.

Heljan's new model will depict Lyn in L&BR dark olive green and Southern Railway Maunsell green with authentic detail variations according to period and livery. For the benefit of the many OO9 modellers with ‘freelance’ railways Heljan also plan to offer a version in undecorated works black. Research and development is underway and more details about price, features and specification will be announced later.
