Cheers Tom - they are surprisingly powerful (depending upon gearing set ups with the chain sprockets) but can pull quite heavy weights up steepish gradients. Have a look at the Scamp Facebook page.

Finally on wheels! Lots more to do - like fitting chains, motors and brakes, but at least I can push it!

Love it! I want one now...  ;D

I cam across a smallholding channel on Youtube that are building some rail tracks for moving stuff around the farm - this would be ideal!

The Scamp locos are quite powerful and can be used for work as above if you wish - have a look at this one

CMD - who also make the Scamp kits do a tipper wagon kit in 7.25 guage too!

Laying track eh...

So your next project needs to be a scaled down auto track laying machine such as this

Well a momentous day today as Scamp 92 ran under its own steam - so to speak! I fell quite chuffed (no pun intended) . I will try and get some video footage of it on the rails.
