    Yay, Hallelujah!
    A truly iconic diesel for me. I always admired HJs 7mm version and this looks to be even better.
    I understand that the Barwell team are also revisiting their version? Which I also love so it will be good to be able to see how another maker tackles it.
    Cheers,

    I wonder if Heljan’s tendency of announcing announcements allowed Bachmann to steal their thunder this time? Plenty of people online ordered the Bachmann version yesterday.

    A 7mm version of that would be nice...

    I'd be tempted by 45133 in blue... wouldn't say I've driven it but I have moved it and worked on it ;)
