DescriptionA sit-in ‘HST’ style locomotive; overscale for 7¼” gauge (width and height are near enough scale for 10 ¼” gauge) to allow it to be sit-in. The body is reused from an old loco, but the chassis is a prototype for a locomotive design we are developing.
Welded steel box section chassis. Welded 6mm steel bogie frames with ball transfer units as load carriers between chassis and bogie. 6” diameter wheels in EN8 steel, machined to 7 ¼” gauge Society Narrow Gauge Standards. Wheelsets run in sprung self-aligning take up bearings. Front bogie mounted 6.5hp single cylinder petrol engine driving through a mechanical forward/reverse gearbox giving top speeds of approx 12mph forwards and 6mph reverse. Manually operated disc brake on rear unpowered bogie.
Body is in the early BR Blue/Yellow Intercity livery, although we have not fitted ‘Intercity’ decals in case you wish to fit some other text in that position (e.g. railway name).
7′ long (over rear coupling)
18 ⅛” wide
12″ bogie wheelbase
3′ 4″ bogie centres
Due to it being a prototype we are offering at a reduced price of £3500.
