Description

Victoria is a true diesel electric C’C’. The build was described in 7 1/4” News 131 & 132.

She is fitted with a Kipor 6700TA 5kVa generator. This drives through single to three phase inverters two 1hp 220 volt motors one per 6 wheel bogie, geared down 16 to 1. Top speed is adjustable in the software up to a maximum of 16mph (double motor speed) but geared for 8mph at single motor speed. Doubling the motor speed is quite acceptable, the motors and inverters from Drives Direct and took their advice.

Roughly 650kg in weight. Two 0-6-0 bogies with flangeless centre wheels, coupling rods, all bearings sealed for life, air brakes, rear view camera. Very stable despite its size 27” wide just less than 8’ long and 62 1/2” tall the cab gutters are a touch wider at 28 1/4” at 59” above tail. All the bodywork is aluminium so rot is never going to be an issue.

As she has a single phase generator you have 220v anywhere you have track.
