Factory decorated O gauge Mk2 coaches herald the long-awaited start of production on these essential BR era passenger vehicles.

Despite a factory closure, a global pandemic and obstacles that we thought would never end, our new O gauge Mk2 coaches are finally battling their way towards release. A huge step forward this week is the arrival of the first set of complete factory decorated samples. As you can see, these stylish BR Inter-City coaches are really starting to look the part. However, please be aware that they are pre-production samples, subject to change and improvement before production gets underway. For example, none of the samples have their superbly decorated interiors yet - these will be shown on later samples. Various other areas for improvement have already been identified and will be addressed before the models are approved for production.

No fewer than 28 models will be produced in 14 classic liveries, covering five types of vehicle - Brake Second Open (BSO), Brake Second Open with Micro-Buffet (BSOT), Brake First Corridor (BFK), First Corridor (FK) and Tourist Second Open (TSO). For the full list, see the HELJAN 2024 catalogue or contact your favourite HELJAN stockist. Liveries will include BR Blue/Grey, Network SouthEast, ScotRail, Provincial Trans-Pennine, Regional Railways, ScotRail 'Hebridean' Green/Cream, RTC Red/Blue, West Coast Railways maroon, Network Rail Yellow and DRS Blue. In response to public demand, two FK vehicles will be produced in BR Southern Region Green and (exclusively for Tower Models) BR Lined Maroon.

Standard features include...

  • Detachable magnetic roof

  • Exquisitely detailed interiors for all versions

  • Separately fitted seats, tables and luggage racks

  • Sprung Buffers

  • Fully functional drophead buckeye couplers

  • Light Bar Ready

  • Customer-fit gangway & underframe parts to finish vehicles as vacuum-braked Mk2z or air-braked Mk2a

  • Finely detailed decoration appropriate to vehicle/livery - including authentic period window destination labels on NSE, Trans-Pennine and ScotRail vehicles.
