Heljan's Class 20 arrives for review.
I've had the pleasure of running my eye over Heljan's latest 7mm scale offering, the venerable Class 20. While the disc-headcode version appeared some years ago, this is the first of Heljan's headcode box-fitted variant. And jolly nice it is too! It would certainly make for an interesting weathering job, as I don't remember ever seeing a blue-liveried 'Chopper' looking this clean. The sight and sound of a pair of shabby blue '20s' on a loaded coal train was always a highlight of my young train spotting days, with their distinctive whistling/helicopter tones being audible from miles away. Happy days..!
Look out for a full review in Model Rail magazine soon.
