A brand new 00 gauge locomotive especially developed by “Heljan Model Railways” as part of their DCC READY series. This locomotive in British Rail Green livery is commonly referred to as a “Baby Deltic” with running number D5900 model 2300 . This locomotive remains UNUSED and complete with accessories service sheets and packaging!

The British Rail Class 23 were a class of ten Bo-Bo diesel-electric locomotives built by the English Electric Company (EE) in 1959. The power unit used was a Napier Deltic T9-29 9-cylinder engine of 1,100 bhp (820 kW) driving an EE generator, which powered the four traction motors. They were numbered from D5900 to D5909.

The T9-29 diesel engine was a single, half-sized version of those used in the more powerful British Rail Class 55 ‘Deltic’ locomotives, and the overall design and external appearance of the Class 23 was also similar to the Class 55, but much shorter, leading to their nickname of Baby Deltics.

    Lovely Mini Me

    You just have to love this mini Deltic, it’s like a puppy and a perfect size for a shelf layout diesel yard. As soon as I saw this I had to have it. Runs smooth as silk, now waiting for the sound decoder to arrive.

    My first time using Wren Model Railways, this international order was dealt with promptly and professionally.
