5 inch gauge Class 47 battery electric - stock code 3334

A battery-electric Class 47 to the Dan Jeavons design. It has four motors (two per bogie), runs on 24 volts with a pair of sealed Yuasa batteries with remote control for driver. Up front there are working lights, a pair of horns and a sound card that makes a rather flatulent noise.

A large, powerful engine that goes very well - I took it to the club on Saturday afternoon where we all had a drive, I was impressed by just how smoothly it takes off and the fine control and braking offered by the electronic motor controller.

There's a video of us running round here.
