The IMP is a small but solidly engineered half horsepower 7 1/4” gauge battery electric loco equally at home on a garden railway or trundling round your local club track. The IMP is designed by Colin Edmondson and shares the same ingenious bolt together design as the very popular Scamp. Controls are simple, a direction switch, a speed controller, a ‘dead man’s’ foot pedal, which cuts power if the driver isn’t on board, and a handbrake working on all four wheels. It takes only a few moments to detach the heavy battery box, making it a lot easier to transport the IMP in the back of the car when visiting other tracks.
IMP is a light duty locomotive and is happy trundling around with one or two carriages*
The Ready to Run IMP comes complete with batteries and is ready to start driving. The only optional extra is the slatted seat, which gives a lot more back support and adds £75. The standard ready to run IMP will be supplied with a padded seat on top of the battery box. 24v battery charger not supplied.
*Actual performance will depend on track conditions, rail type and gradients.
