Rails/Heljan 18100

Postby D605Eagle » Wed Oct 13, 2021 1:32 am

Hot on the heals of the very nice 18000, kerosene castle Mk2 is hot on it's heals from Rails. Additionally with this loco, you can order it in it's later guise as the 25KV test loco sometimes referred to as a class 80 No E1000 or E2001 as it was renumbered. Many may remember it dumped for years outside Rugby. The price has gone up £25 from 18000 unsurprisingly.....

This one will probably be good on set track 3rd radius if designed in the same way, as it is a slightly easier proposition as a subject since the bodywork is 'full width' down to the bottom edge, and the wheel diameter is smaller at 3'8". Can see this being popular in electric form too, as that offers 'excuses' for deployment on 25kV routes.

It did make it to Scotland but as a static load bank, so cannot really justify :D
