Model Rail / Heljan Class 11 0-6-0DE

Recommended Posts

This months Model Rail dropped through the door yesterday and the new big announcement is with Heljan they are tooling a Class 11.

Looks like 14 different liveries including pre-war, post-war, Longmoor and industrial.

They are also doing 5 class 12's which will include detail differences like the Bulleid 'Boxpok' wheels.

 

More info in Model Rail 263 (August).

 

I'm sure Chris @dibber25 will be along soon to tell us more.

 

I'm definately interested in the ICI and NCB loco's

Excellent news, we had 2 of these at Cambridge (12134 & 12136). That just leaves an E4 2-4-0 and my stud will be complete! (Though a few could do with updating).

Hi,

 

Good news. I can't buy Model Rail in my town, any chance of publishing the details of the Class 11/12 models announced here?.

Oh goody, one of each please, one weathered green and ine weathered blue, so that would be MR-513 and MR-604 possibly an MR-508 as well.

Ooo very nice.

 

makes sense as there’s not too many shunters that would be viable left to do, but these offer a huge range of geography and purpose.

I wonder if an NS, DB,DSB, VR are on the list or if it is left to the Roco version to cover Europe (though some have been repatriated)?

The 11s are not expected until Q1 2022 with 15 liveries available, black, green, blue, ICI and NCB wethered, wasp stripes etc, lots of fancy electrickery stuff inside for those who work with the extra C.

 

The 12s are expected Q1 2023 with 5 versions available.

Oh dear, says my credit card. 3 locos look very interesting, a class 11 , a (G)WR 350 and a class 12 all in green with wasp ends. :locomotive:

 

 

The class 12 is a nice surprise and the WR locos even bigger surprise.

On the other hand, going by “According to Chris...” dibber25 has gas turbine electric 18000 in mind. Whether it turns into a RTR model or not is another matter. Wouldn’t it be exciting if it did?

Good choice of prototype and I'm up for at least one. The first MR release that will go on my 'definite 'need'' list rather than 'nice to have'.

I've had 18000 in mind for years and put it forward on numerous occasions, but so far, no takers. (CJL)

Gosh it’s refreshing to see a new modern image type, than a re-run, my wallet was beginning to think i’d given up spending.

 

so that’s 3 for me off the bat... Green w/wasp, Black and 15224... but.... two others catch my eye...

Class 11

MR-506: WR green, British Railways lettering, 15106

 

 

https://www.rail-online.co.uk/p57769627/h269cba8#h269cba8

 

In this (rather distinctive) livery?

 

Five figure GWR cast plates with just the '6' polished / painted; large hand-painted '6' on the cab (and radiator?); GWR-style 'BRITISH RAILWAYS'.

 

Intriguing, and certainly one for me!

 

Regards,

John Isherwood.

Looking at the picture in model Rail, yes it is in that livery, the 6 on the cab end is clearly visible and it is just possible to make out the 6 (and only the 6) on the numberplate.

Err - no; (D)12040 is not in the list of forthcoming releases.

But D12062 is.

Everyone knows you’re a man of taste. Perhaps its time will come if the GT3 project comes to fruition. Perhaps a prompt will come from a different direction with all the requests for early AC electrics. Design a tooling that could produce a Class 80 and 18100 and suddenly people will want 18000 too.

 

Won’t they? Especially when they hear another turbine sound project?

One of my 'Three Most Wanted', the Class 11, Johnson 2F and Stanier 2-6-2T is to be produced. 

 

For this one it has to be dirty black renumbered to a Bescot one.

Excellent news. I will go for this pair:

MR-501: WD green, 70271 --> should go well with the rail gun. The loco was involved in a sad incident on the LMR in 1956 though.
MR-603: BR green, wasp stripes, 15224 --> hard time choosing which of the Bulleids. They did not last long enough in Blue. Black was a choice too, however this particular loco had a rich history and is preserved.

I love 18000's looks but I sometimes wonder if I would have enjoyed how it sounded or smelled. Having lived under the Heathrow flightpath for half my life, I guess the sound and the smell might be all too familiar! However, 18000 would be a bit big and too streamlined for Model Rail. We've just done a steam loco that looks like a garden shed, now we're doing a diesel that looks like a bunch of tin lockers nailed together! I guess what it lacked in beauty, it made up for with pretty colour schemes - and there are loads to choose from!. (CJL)
