Our Rolling Stock
Our planned rolling stock that we will launch the business with will include the following:
Titan 5 Bo-Bo Battery Locomotive
The 5 inch gauge Titan 5 Bo-Bo Locomotive. Shown here at Phoenix Locomotives.
It's a powerful locomotive, capable of hauling up to 14 passengers + driver.
Technically it is powered by two 12v car batteries connected to four 150w motors - one for each wheel set. It is 1.2m long or just shy of 4ft and weighs in at 45kg (without batteries)
The loco has many safety features including a speed limiter and dead mans switch.
It is a large locomotive based on an outline narrow gauge diesel locomotive. The loco will be in red with a white central roof (reflecting our company colours) and will be named Sir Robert Banastre.
3ft Driving Truck
This 5 inch gauge 3ft driving truck is supplied by Ride on Railways.
The driving coach can be converted for use on ground level or raised track lines.
The chassis is made of steel and has sprung wheels and hand brake. The body is made of wood.
5ft Passenger Coach
Shown here at Abbots Model Engineering. This will be delivered unpainted and will subsequently be fitted with raised ends.
It can carry up to 4 people and we will have 3 of these coaches.
It has removable steel running boards which makes it easy to transport.
We have yet to decide on a colour scheme though it may be painted to mimic a US Railroad boxcar.
The video below shows a Titan 5 under test. Ours will be red with a white central roof.
