1:13.7 Scale - 3 Ton Plymouth Locomotive
1:13.7 SCALE - 3 TON PLYMOUTH LOCOMOTIVE
This is a 7/8" = 1 foot scale model of a 3-ton Plymouth industrial gas/mechanical locomotive. The prototype was built in 1930 and is still in operation at The Inland Empire Railway Historical Society in Spokane, Washington.
The model comes built up and ready to run. Our drive mechanism features a large transverse mounted electrical motor that drives through two jack shafts. This design is used to reduce top end speed, and increase low end torque, so that the loco runs at about 9.25 scale mph at full throttle. All power is transmitted through Delrin™ chains and sprockets. (There are no worm or spur gears.) The model is constructed almost entirely of CNC milled brass components and weighs about 8 1/2 pounds. Because of it's weight and power the model will actually pull more cars than the prototype.
We offer this little critter in the following configurations:
Track powered, unpainted brass = $595.00
Track powered, painted and weathered = $695.00
Battery powered with charger w/o radio control, unpainted brass = $745.00
Battery powered with charger w/o radio control, painted and weathered = $845.00
Battery powered with charger and RCS radio control, unpainted brass = $995.00
Battery powered with charger and RCS radio control, painted and weathered = $1095.00
Optional detailing package including a painted driver, (a modified Carlo Spirito figure) Talisman bell (from England), and Ozark Miniatures castings (rerailing frogs, water bag, wrenches, a hydraulic jack and oil can.) add $100.00.
The battery pack supplied with this locomotive is custom built by North West Radio Control Services. It is a 14.4 volt 1200 MAh rechargeable Ni-Cd pack that fits under the hood. It will power this loco for about 4 1/2 to 7 hours on a single charge. The length of run you get from a fully charged battery will, of course, depend on your operational conditions but, it is not uncommon to run all day on a single charge. The charger that comes with this battery pack is set for slow recharging to protect the batteries from developing a "memory" that is so common to "quick charge" systems. It will take a full 8 to 12 hours to recharge a battery pack that has been totally discharged. Extra battery packs are available at $80.00 each.
Please add $20.00 for shipping, handling and insurance. (UPS ground)
