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
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
