Industrial 0-4-0 32mm Gauge (Notice of interest)
Notice of interest in 32mm gauge
Newly designed smaller locomotive to suit many of the small garden railways.
Locomotive is designed and built in house by myself and Justin Koch. These are based upon various designs of the lightweight contractor type designs. 2 cab types and 2 tank types will be available. Shown is the open cab and side tanks. Also available will be a saddle tank and a closed cab with spectacles. Both cabs are interchangable with both tanks making 4 different designs. Quality brass castings and detail parts of our design will be used throughout the production.
Specifications include Slide valve cylinders 1/2" bore with Slip eccentric at 85% cutoff. Boiler will be copper and 40psi operating pressure with a sight glass and goodall. Axles are bushed in oillite bronze and all rods are bushed. Cylinders are designed as all oring gland sealed and easily serviceable. Will include a dead leg lubricator mounted in the cab. Total length is about 8.5" long over the end beams
Gauge will be non adjustable but will be available in both 32mm and 45mm.
They will be offered in 4-5 colors yet to be standardized.
We plan to build these in a production batch yearly so that we can still offer other productions and coal conversions. The total number per year is unknown but more detailed data wil be released as we figure it out. In the end you will get a handbuilt model designed, built and tested personally. This project has been quite some time in the making.
Hoping to have a working chassis for Diamondhead 2019
Serviceable parts and spares will be available.
