7 1/4 inch gauge Phoenix Locos "Comet" battery electric - stock code 9780

A 7 1/4 inch gauge "Comet" 0-4-0 battery electric, commercially produced by Phoenix Locos.

It's come to us as part of a large collection of locomotives and stationary engines, having seen occasional use from new on the owner's garden railway where it shared duties with his "Feldbahn" 0-4-0T.

A powerful locomotive, it has an iDrive D51176 motor controller with pair of 12 volts batteries driving a Bosch 1hp motor with chain dirve to both axles.

Paintwork is generally in good condition with minor wear from everyday running, there is light surface rust to some steel parts under the bonnet.

Full specification and futher details of the locomotive are on Phoenix Locos' excellent website here.
