The bodywork is of brass sheet an the wheels and gears are from the charlatan range. The motors are from an Austin Princess cooling fan. It was maintained with new motor brushes and axle box bearings. The drive is a PWM system supplied by Parkside Electronics.. It was originally Scotrail blue but was re=painted Scotrail colours. After retirement, the model was photographed at at a Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition.
