British Railway’s ‘standard’ Type 1 is released in ‘OO’.
ORIGINALLY PLANNED FOR release in the middle of last year, ready-to-run manufacturer Heljan is finally shipping the first examples of its 4mm scale Clayton Type 1 Bo-Bo (TOPS Class 17). Never a success on the real railway, the Danish firm will be hoping that the quirky nature of these machines will be more appealing to modellers.
A full review of this all new model will appear in the next issue of RAIL EXPRESS Modeller, but for now here are a few pictures of the locomotive.
