7 1/4 inch gauge petrol-hydraulic shunter with ride-in tender - stock code 8277

We originally bought this one from the builder back in 2017, it sold to a local man, keeping a "Feldbahn" company on his garden railway. Something of an electronics whizz, in his ownership the locomotive was fitted with a powerful headlamp, new cab controls, volt and ammeters and a GPS speedometer - all well thought out and neatly executed.

Still in good running order, although the Eaton hydrostatic gearbox needs a replacement oil seal on the output shaft - the last owner simply contrived a tray to collect the drips!

Photographs opposite and words below are from last time it was here - it's in much the same condition now. There's a short clip of it here, taken in our yard in recent days.

There are a few more pictures in the archive here, showing what lurks "under the bonnet".

A robustly constructed 7 1/4 inch gauge petrol-hydraulic shunter, using a 9hp electric start four stroke engine coupled to the inevitable Eaton transmission.

Fitted with two tone horns and electric cooling fan for the transmission, complete with a comfortable ride in tender. Paintwork has been done to a good standard and remains in excellent condition.
