Big Red

 

This rather large tender locomotive arrived in October 2015.

 

Scratchbuilt around 2004 this steam locomotive is built upon the successful Roundhouse Engineering Lady Anne chassis, with a Finescale Engineering boiler and gas burner.  It is a large locomotive capable of being gauged to run on 32mm or 45mm track and is radio controlled on both the reverser and regulator.

 

This locomotive had not been in service for a number of years upon arriving at the Elmtree Line, and received a full overhaul including partial repaint and upgrade of the tender bogies to metal ones.
