Product description

The HELJAN range of BR diesels in O gauge continues to expand with the addition of the Class 17 centre-cab Type 1. Despite their attractive design, intended to give crews better all-round visibility than existing Type 1 diesels, the ‘Claytons’ proved to be an expensive and short-lived failure. However, their short career has made them something of a ‘cult classic’ among diesel enthusiasts and interest remains strong with modellers of the steam/diesel transition era.

Building on the success of Heljan's OO gauge ‘Clayton’, this new locomotive will feature fine detail throughout, twin motor bogies, LED lighting functions, etched grilles, sprung buffers and has been designed for easy DCC and sound installation, plus provision for an ESU smoke unit.

Design work was completed earlier this year and the first engineering prototype samples of the O gauge Class 17 are expected to arrive in the UK early in 2019. Models will be released in all the major livery variations and will include a weathered edition.
