Our Rail Bus KIT designed as a powerful battery electric engine with interior detailing of drivers cab and passenger seating in both carriages with glazing on all sides. The Rail Bus has a front engine bonnet with vents in the front and sides covered with a wire mesh. The bonnet is designed to lift off for servicing. The batteries are housed at the back of the chassis. The locomotive uses a large RS 385 motor diving through a reduction gear onto a drive shaft that then drives on both axles for good traction. The battery pack houses four AA batteries that can be swapped for rechargeable batteries.
The locomotive has LED lighting at the front and rear which provides bi-directional head lights. The locomotive is fully upgradeable to radio control using one of the Yatton receiver cards or your own choice of radio control equipment.
The axels are GRS 25mm steel insulated wheels and uses heavy gauge gears for good reliable running. The axles are mounted into the frame using brass bearings for smooth running. The drive shaft powers a worm gear onto each axle for the best tractive effort.
