Heljan are producing a newly tooled O gauge model of the Class 149 & 150 trailer cars. These models will be perfect for use with Heljan's forthcoming Class 121 & 122 'Bubble Cars' as in real life, these unpowered trailers were often coupled up to such units to form a 2-car train. A number of variations will cover these trailers in BR green, blue and sectorisation era colour schemes.

Forthcoming Models - Class 149
1240 - W56282 in BR green - £211.65
1241 - W56282 in BR green - £211.65
1242 - W56284 in BR blue with full yellow ends - £211.65
1243 - W54281 in BR blue and grey - £211.65

Alongside construction of the Class 121 and Class 122 'Bubble Car' multiple units, British Rail commissioned the construction of some unpowered trailer cars to be coupled up to them should there be a need for increased capacity on a service. The Class 149 was produced as an unpowered version of the Class 121 and the Class 150 for the Class 122. They were visually similar, albeit with only one cab at one end.
