Heljan has posted images on their Facebook of the first decorated samples of the OO/1:76 Class 86/4

It's the one you've been waiting for - the first factory decorated sample of our new OO gauge Class 86/4. The first-ever dedicated ready-to-run model of this popular sub-class, the '86/4' is a colourful follow-up to our recent Class 86/0.

This latest evolution of our '86' features Flexicoil springs, SAB resilient wheels and various cab front arrangements featuring original multiple working cables/sockets and/or TDM cables. Models will also feature either our existing Faiveley pantograph or the newly-developed Brecknell-Willis high-speed 'pan' (photos soon).

Standard features include a 21-pin DCC interface, LED lighting and a heavy, smooth-running chassis with all-wheel drive.

No fewer than 9 liveries are in development, including a pair of Freightliner Powerhaul machines for the Gaugemaster Collection.However, Res red/grey 86416 is the first to break cover. Look out for more updates soon!
