Project Loco 2 Information

The Project Loco was one of our first loco designs and has been sold all over the world. We updated the loco in 2010 and introduced the bolt together all steel construction. This loco can be built in a weekend and is powerful enough to pull 8-10 passengers and keep performing all day on one battery charge. It will negotiate very tight radii down to 10ft.

Available in a colour finish of your own choice; the Project Loco is both compact and very capable, making it the ideal choice for the garden or club railway.

The 5" gauge Project Loco uses the same all steel body and chassis construction as its big brother. The drive system uses our 5” bogie technology and incorporates two swinging arms fitted with two DC motors. This combination coupled with the latest digital control technology make a very compact and capable locomotive equally at home on the garden railway or the club track. The loco will comfortably pull several passengers and is capable of an afternoons work on one battery charge.

The loco can be built on the kitchen table in a weekend using basic hand-tools. You will need to provide a pair of batteries, everything else is included.

All 2015 Project Locos are supplied with Stainless steel window frames, glazing and fasteners as standard.
