7 1/4 inch gauge Class 08 shunter - stock code 8256

We sold this one to a local chap last year. Progress under new ownership has been limited - it's come back in pretty much the same state as it went out.

A 7 1/4 inch gauge Class 08 shunter, with glass fibre body on a steel chassis. For restoration, it needs a good clean and spruce up, a few hours spent repainting the chassis and coupling rods would be well rewarded.

Drive is provided by three axle-mounted motors - rating label shows 24 volt; 12 amp; 5000 rpm - driving through gears, powered by a 4QD 24 volt 150 amp controller. There is a DIN-type connector at the rear of the locomotive for a remote control, however the control itself is missing. There is a pair of horns mounted between the frames at the front.

The locomotive requires a pair of 12 volt lead-acid batteries, for which there are quick detach connectors fitted.
