Radio Controlled 0-16.5

One of our members has regularly been displaying new 0-16.5 models that have been built for his garden railway. They operate by radio control, the battery power pack are usually stored in a van towed behind the loco. Geoff Grumble enjoys using second hand chassis where possible and to repair or modify them for the model under construction even to the extent of adding new machined parts. Here are a few photo of his work recently:-
