5 inch gauge Maxitrak battery electric - stock code 5047

A venerable example of Maxitrak’s “Simplicity” battery electric shunter. Designed to be configured for either 5 or 7 ¼ inch gauge use, it is a large engine in 5 inch gauge.

Based on a cast alloy chassis, the bodywork in in glassfibre. The single motor chain drives to the wheels, power is from a large 12 volt battery. The body gel-coat is still in respectable condition, the remainder could be considerably smartened up with some judicious repainting of the frames. Goes well, it would be a useful addition to a ground level garden railway.

Length 35 inches

gauge 5 inch
