Constructing an 0-4-0PH locomotive (Cerys)

This set of web pages documents the construction of the 7.25" gauge 0-4-0PH locomotive shown above. The design of this is rooted in the tram engine shown elsewhere on this web site. It will (hopefully) fulfil the following design aims:

  1. Have more adhesive weight than the tram
  2. Be capable of 'sit on' operation (Thus adding to the adhesive weight, as well as not requiring a driving truck)
  3. Fit into the car easily (The tram is about 8" too long for this)

As well as taking forward the good points of the tram:

  1. Simple, strong construction
  2. Powerful for its size (5HP) and simple to drive (Eaton hydraulic transmission)
