5 inch gauge Class 08 style battery electric - stock code 8186

Possibly optimistic to list this one as a Class 08, but it was clearly what was in the builder's mind when he set off for the shed to create this one.


It's been well thought out, with a 24 volt motor driving a jackshaft at the front of the locomotive, thence coupled by chain to the centre driving axle.


Power and adhesion is provided by a pair of 12 volt, 30Ah batteries.


The body is quickly detachable, with a pin at the rear and pair of catches either side.
