New Locomotive - UPDATE
The locomotive is now back at Hotham and has been painted to enable us to display it at Bognor Carnival. Since then we have test run it using a 12 volt battery linked to just one of the motor bogies. It successfully moved into the platform before reversing and climbing to the summit of the top loop. Very good considering an undersized battery and only one bogie powered.
