MaxiTrak - J94 Austerity 0-6-0 (5" Gauge)

MaxiTrak - J94 Austerity 0-6-0 (5" Gauge)

MaxiTrak - During the Second World War the British army had a need for a small tank engine. With specific requirements in mind the design chosen was an update of a standard Hunslet industrial locomotive. It was a short wheelbase powerful 0-6-0 saddle tank well suited to the task in hand, able to deal with heavy trains on rough or steeply curved track.

 

Our model faithfully represents its full-size counterpart in 5" gauge. It has the same attributes, being capable of pulling 6 to 8 adults and will negotiate curves down to 10 ft radius. It is the latest in a series of 0-6-0 designs built over the last decade to a well proven design.
