Project Loco 2

The Project Loco is a freelance design which takes many of its styling cues from the Hunslet Locomotives of yesteryear. The model has been sold into many countries and has proved to a robust and reliable performer equally at home on the club track or garden railway.

The 5" gauge version of the Project Loco belies its diminutive size of 22in long by hauling 4-5 passengers with ease for an afternoons running on club tracks and on the smallest of garden railways. It can be built in a weekend and requires no special tools or knowledge.

Titan Bogie Loco

We were asked if you could double head a pair of Project locos for greater passenger hauling power. This request led to the introduction of the titan 7 which is effectively a pair of Project Locos on one chassis. The low profile bogies each have the same power unit as a Project loco and give the Titan the ability to tackle passenger hauling with ease.

Scaled at 75% of its big brother, the Titan 5 features four motors and all axles are driven. The kit can easily be built in a weekend with no special tools required, follow the illustrated build instructions and you could be on the track with your own loco in no time.

The Tug

The Tug is the result of a visit to the wonderful 18" gauge Steeple Grange Light Railway. Spending a day with the diesel workhorses on that line led to the development of our own narrow gauge workhorse which we just had to call The Tug. All Steel construction powder coated in customer choice of colour along with a pair of 1 Hp motors controlled by a 180amp digital controller.

Vale of Ffestiniog

The classic Festiniog Railway diesel loco was created from an earlier Funkey loco which was purchased by the railway from South Africa. The Funkey had a single cab and one long bonnet. It was decided to convert this to a double ended loco with a cab at both ends. The designer Steve Coulson built the loco for the railway and was kind enough to allow us access to some of his Cad files to enable us to replicate our own version of Vale of Ffestiniog.
