7 1/4 inch gauge battery-electric shunter - stock code 7405

A scratch built 7 1/4 inch gauge battery electric shunter. Sinclair C5 motor transversely mounted in the cab, driving through a gearbox and chains to all wheels. Parkside controller for the motors, there's a set of indecently loud-looking air horns under the bonnet. Speed and direction controller on back of cab.

Quite like this one, it's somewhat quirky with enough detailing to be reminiscent of any number of small narrow gauge diesels.
