Scamp – Laser cut parts kit
The Scamp is a small 7¼” gauge sit on locomotive, ideal for all miniature railway use. Powered by a petrol engine and two 800 watt electric motors. The 1st of the motors is driven by the engine and acts as a dynamo, this generated power is used to drive the second motor via a reversing switch and electronic speed controller. Braking is by hand operated ratchet lever, applying braking force to all four wheels.
Scamp also has the option to be fully electric by removing the engine and generator unit and dropping in the optional battery box, this change over takes no more than five minutes and makes the loco ideal for indoor or quiet miniature railway use.
For easy transport the loco breaks down into sub assemblies.
Undo one screw and the bonnet is released, slacken two bolts, undo a cable and a connector and the complete engine and generator sub-assembly lifts out.
The seat is held by two screws, then what is left is easy to lift into the back of a car.
The Scamp is available fully assembled and also in a kit form of laser cut parts. Optional extras are available and the front grille of the Lister bonnet can also be customised.
Scamp can also be built in 10 1/4″ gauge. This version is a little wider and adds £100 to the standard price.
Scamp is a versatile locomotive and many can be seen up and down the country working both passenger and works trains.
Whats in the parts kit?
The kit includes all the laser cut steel parts to make the frame, engine cradle, seat box, foot rest, axleboxes, brake lever, bonnet mounted throttle lever, brake rigging and the bonnet of your choice. Bonnet choices are currently Lister, Scamp, O&K or Ruston. You purchase the rest of the parts from the shopping list supplied. Fully illustrated instructions are also included.
The frame and body are bolted and pop-riveted
together from the kit of laser cut steel parts supplied, bringing
construction time down to a minimum. One working day
should see all the assemblies finished, and provided all the
parts are to hand a second days work should see the loco
complete and ready to test prior to stripping and painting. The
only welding needed is to fix the wheels to the axles and the
sprockets to the layshaft, these can be supplied ready done by
us for an additional cost.
