Just came across the Timpdon r/c set up I was going to fit in the loco when I originally planned the project. Includes everything you need. Happy to include this with the loco and chassis above as I'm having a clear out!

Such a good price, I am surprised this is still here. I don't have the money, but if I did, it would already be gone. :thumbup:

I might have been tempted if it was 45mm gauge. But do I really need another loco?
Tricky..... :dontknow:

I guess people aren't so keen on building kits these days with so much relatively inexpensive rtr on the market. There was a build article in Garden Rail a few years ago and the writer had made a lovely job of it. My interests have changed and sadly I haven't the time/motivation to spend on this project.

Is this still available, and if so, is it the later kit which I think has a pre-formed tank?

Hi Phil
Yes and yes! Still available and the saddle tank is preformed plastic - injection moulded I guess.

Just checked and the instructions say it's a resin body kit which looks straightforward enough. The article was in Garden Rail No 207 and GRS have thoughtfully provided a copy with the kit. With luck I'll have included some pics with this post. I was impressed with the chassis when I bought it - neatly done and with a nice robust feel.

If I was in the market for yet another loco I would bite your hand off for this one! Unfortunately, I have more than enough to cope with, so it's not for me this time. However, I do have one of those GRS chassis and I agree it is a superb runner and very well made. The motor is rated at 12-24v but mine operates very well on 8 AA rechargeable batteries (9.6v) with no problems.
