Offering a new model 00 gauge especially developed by “Heljan Model Railways” as part of their recent prototype series. This engine is the AC Cars W7997 BR dark Green Livery with SYP & White cab roof 88021.

These vehicles were designed and built by AC Cars Ltd., of Thames Ditton, Surrey. They were the first of the five railbus designs to be delivered (although not the first to enter traffic). They operated on the ScR and WR, and were withdrawn by 1968.

The firm (formerly known as Auto Carriers Ltd.) are famed for building a range of vehicles from the Cobra sports car to the three wheeled invalid carriage for the Government. They had some previous experience with rail vehicles, building four trains for the Southend Pier Railway in 1949, each consisting of three power cars and four trailers, which remained in use until 1976.
