Next up for Review the Heljan Class 17 in BR Blue (Item no. 17081). I bought this a couple of months ago having never bought Heljan before, let’s check it out…

117 Class 17 Clayton Type 1 Diesel-Electrics were built in 1963 in Derby and spent the majority of their short life in the Scottish Regions.
It has been my intention for a while to offer some insights in to some of the models and stock I run on my layouts: why I’ve chosen them, what I think of them and would I recommend them to a friend. To accommodate this, welcome to the new Review section of the CAS site! Recently inspired by similar bloggers and vloggers, (noteably IC82 and LocoYard – both worth subscribing to by the way) overtime I hope to offer focus on new models I purchase as well as taking a retrospective look at some of the older parts of my collection.
I’m going to start with my most recent purchase: The Hornby DB Schenker Class 67 (R3039). My plan is to give you an overview of the model and different versions are available for purchase and then give the loco a score out of 10 for Packaging, Features, Details & Finish, Running and Price before totting these up to give you an average mark.
