Welcome to our "coming soon" page, here we will give a quick rundown and estimated prices of the new products and their features that are currently in development.



10.25"/12.25" gauge bogie.
These are currently in production as a one off item with everything designed to be easily recreated for follow on production. They measure roughly 36" long by 18" wide by 14" high over the motors. Each one is powered by two 1kW continuously rated 24V DC industrial motors geared for 8mph to provide excellent start up torque and a preset top speed. Also fitted as standard with either direct or failsafe air brakes. ~4200 ea including electronic controller.

200A multivoltage speed controller - prototype is almost finished ready for testing
We are finally entering the higher power side of things with our new 200A speed controller. It will be fitted with current detection to prevent overloads and a working voltage of anywhere between 12 and 48 volts. Simply wire up the number of batteries you need and the system will sort itself out. What you put in you get back out again. around the 300 mark is to be ecpected.


Sound systems
Although being designed to work on our old controllers the best version will be on our new ones. we aim to create a box that plugs in between the handset and your main speed controller that picks up everything the handset is doing and vary the sound output accordingly. Apart from wiring the speaker and power supply in it is going to be pretty much plug and play. The way we are doing it allows two things to happen, firstly on the new updated controllers we will use the current detection circuit to provide feedback to the sound system to "load" the engine. Secondly we are making it so you can plug the model railway NMRA compliant sound chips in, meaning that literally over a 1000 worldwide locos are available with at least a 100 british ones all prototypically created and they arent limited to standard gauge either. The big advantage of this is its the same product no matter what and if you have more than one loco you dont need to buy multiple sound systems, make it so it can be transported between them and simply alter the sound chip. Approx 200 plus the purchase of the sound chip. (in most cases all in is looking at around 300)

Pedal loco - prototype almost finished, just kinks to work out
We all like to drive around a track but only by pedalling your way round can you truly see where the hard bits are. We have designed a pedal powered rail vehicle ideal for those that want something a little more fun and indeed for those who would like to combine their hobby with their health. The idea is that you sit down low with a back rest and arm rests to hold you firmly in place, the gearing is worked out so that with a cadence of 60RPM (about average for most people) the top speed will about 8-9mph but we are looking at fitting a 3 speed internal gear box that means in top gear you may be able to do in the region of 12mph with bottom to help you up those long drags. And of course if you put your foot down so to speak you may be able to hit triple that thanks to the low rolling resistance of steel wheels on rail and to help you stop there will be two disk brakes, one on each axle.  Estimates put this at around 500
