Miniature Railways can offer a powerful Hydraulic Drive system to Power our Locomotives
Power: At the heart
of this system is a powerful twin cylinder, water cooled diesel engine. This engine has
proven reliability and economy and is powerful enough to pull up to *60 passengers in a
With a powerful Diesel Engine, we use a well proven Hydraulic Pump to convert the power of
the engine into a controllable form of power that is applied to each of the two bogies,
this allows much of the power generated by the drive system, to be applied to the track,
and with high levels of traction these locomotive can really move a load.
type of locomotive (depending, on body style) is approx. 3 mtrs long 50 cm wide and it
would weigh, in excess of 350 Kg
Speed: The final
speed of the all MMR locomotives is customer led depending, on final application,
typically 7 KPH.
locomotives are equipped with a single neutral lock forward and reverse control lever with
parking brake, lights and horn as standard. We can install a compressor or vacuum pump if
required but this would be supplied as an optional extra.
Mardyke locomotives and carriages have long enjoyed a copy righted dynamic mechanical tilt
system within its bogies, which make the ride more comfortable; our bogies also include a
stability system, which reduces body roll
Mardyke HD locomotives are extremely powerful and are very tough, they are designed to
offer excellent reliability and they can operate trains with anywhere up to 60 passengers
at a time.
