Originally, this switcher was built by RR Supply, "Lil Gasser" Fitted approximately ten years ago with a powerful EMD 24v DC 750w motor/gearbox driving both axles (shown above). 4QD controller, two 12v batteries, automatic 24v charger, included. Capable of pulling 6 passengers up 2.2% grade.

It has two EMD (now Paravalux) 24v DC perm mag motors attached to worm drive 12.5:1 gearboxes with a motor on the front and rear axle. So all wheels are powered. The motors come from UK and are very powerful (750W) and efficient and the loco can pull 20 passengers up 2.5% grades. Many of these motor/g/boxes are in use on our BCSME rr where they operate 60 days a year and are extremely rugged. The loco is quite heavy as it has 1/8" thick steel body. It weighs about 600 lb. This weight is needed for tractive and regenerative braking it has from its 4QD 24-36v 300 amp controller.  Customs duty should be none as it has been built in Canada by Carrs Machining. Free trade rules apply.

One 8 ft ride-astride car, plywood body, Andrews trucks, available upon request. Not Shown.
