Product description

In response to public demand, Heljan are developing a fully re-tooled OO gauge Class 86. They have also taken the opportunity to backdate it to depict the ‘AL6’ in as-built condition and as a Class 86/0 for the period 1965-80. Heljan's new model retains the smooth-running chassis and mechanism of Version 1 but features a number of improvements over their previous Class 86s, including a completely new pantograph, 21-pin DCC interface, better bodyside grilles, plus original pattern bogies and underframe equipment.

CAD work on the models is complete and tooling is now in progress. The first engineering prototype samples of the ‘AL6’ are expected to arrive in the UK early in 2019.

Models will be released in all the major variations of original BR blue and late-1960s/1970s BR Rail Blue and will include a weathered edition.
