5 Inch Planet
Planet is based on the 2ft gauge light industrial locomotives manufactured by F.C. Hibbard and Co at their Park Royal works in London. The model features an all steel bonnet and full cab and incorporates the distinctive Planet radiator and makers plates.
These engines were common in industrial service, both narrow and standard gauge, and were found at many naval dockyards. Our locomotive has a twelve volt car battery housed under the bonnet, driving two low speed high torque motors on each axle through an all gear drive giving 120watts per axle!
It is also fitted with spring suspension, full electronic control and a wealth of detail. The 5 inch Planet is available as a painted kit or ready to run model.
