The train set on the picture is a “prototype” and not with the right color!

Nice to see that even a small country like Sweden can get exclusive models for years with only Rc locomotivesLOL

I rebuilt the old Heljan X2000 but have always wanted a real H0 model.

Another nice coloring as X2000 has when driving between Stockholm - Oslo that we also like to see RollEyes

I must say the silver/gray version does look really good and would probably have been a definite buy if I collected Swedish models. Even though the price has to be high for the model I would have some agony if buying it though. A 7 part set would not come in without a noticeable hole in the wallet..

I picked up my X2000 today and have made short test runs with the motor unit and the end coach with driver's cab. From the limited testing I did, it ran very well. It worked fine in analogue, but due to the fact that I have an old Central control (6022) and an 80f (6036) and not having a clue what address the decoder had - meant that it took me three attempts to find the right address. I started with 03 (as for all Roco digital models) and then when that didn't work, I tried 01 - no success, and then 02 - heureka! it worked! BigGrin (I'm happy they didn't go for 80 with my methodology for finding the address - the well known 'trial and error').

Besides the driving, I liked the flashing tail lights as the prototype has. ThumpUp

02 for 2000. That makes sense. You can be lucky that it has not been set to 2000 DCC long address.Cool Can any of the X2000 owners tell us whether the body is lightproof. I guess there is no interior lighting installed by the factory.

Hej Jonas - the lighting kits look wonderful!

My wife and I took the X 2000 from Malmö to Göteborg in the summer of 01. The train was beautiful, and the ride was as smooth as glass.

Nice Paul that you and wife enjoined the trip with train, some complain that it gets seasick on board Laugh

The prices on the website include 25% VAT.

A boat comes packed with what, yes a real >>X2000<< from China, the only one exported 1993 will be back in Sweden August 24.

You can follow the >>boat<< with the train position on this >>link<< Smile

The railway company SJ AB have renamed X2000 to SJ 2000 so it match their new SJ 3000.

Now with cab light and interior lights. And with TAMS EC it was possible to listen to F17- not really good to understand. Neither the Swedish nor the English part of the anouncement.

Hej Jonas,

I just picked up a complete Heljan X2000 (6 pieces) set at a show. I think the price was OK - about 450 SEK.

How difficult is it to convert the DC lok to 3-rail AC?

mvh, Paul

Hard to say as I have never seen one. If you find a good place for the pick up shoe then the rest schould be easy depending on what wheels are fitted. But I cannot imagine that the Heljan is as good as the Jeco X2000.

Hi Martin,

It is nowhere near the quality of Jeco. But then again, it's nowhere near the price either! BigGrin

I think I can convert it, but it will take some work. The motors are these very small Japanese units that may be a challenge to re-wire, but I'll give it a shot when I have the time.

Hello,

Sorry for the "old topic revival".

I am currently working on the "real" X2000 train overhaul development.

I would like to know if this model is still available, and, if so, at what price.

I would also like to know if the bodies are metal or plastic.

Thank you very much and best regards.

Hello Paul,

Thank you for your reply.

Thanks and regards.



I assume that you are looking for an AC-version.

The Swedish shop MJ-Hobbyexperten has got the older livery still in stock. You can add on decoder.

Another shop, Modelljärnvägsspecialisten has one in grey livery but only as DC-version in stock.

I am a customer of both shops and have good experiences from them.
Note though that MJ-Hobbyexperten is in the Stockholm region where I live I have therefore picked up everything that I have bought in the shop. The shop is owned by the owners of Jeco.
Modelljärnvägsspecialisten is located in Luleå some 900 km north of Stockholm and I have never been to the shop, only used the Internet-shop and taken delivery by mail or Schenker Privpak.

A third shop, Mj-Specialisten, (from which I have never bought anything) seems to be able to deliver both versions. They indicate 10 days delivery time.

Hi Brakepad,

I have been doing business with the shop in Luleå for several years now. They are great to work with.

If you want the 3R-version, I think it's an fairly easy conversion with spare-parts available from MJ-Hobbyexperten.

Thank you very much Thomas.

Anybody can enlighten me regarding the differences between the 2 different AC grey model part numbers, B111 and B113?

Thanks and best regards.

All,

Update on my Heljan X 2000 set. A friend from my club suggested I try to kit-bash a Märklin F7 (eg, the 3060 SantaFe) chassis into the Heljan lok body.

The wheel arrangement (BoBo) is the same, and the wheelbase dimensions are almost identical. The Märklin chassis is heavy, and will easily allow me to convert it to digital and sound. BigGrin
