Recharging the batteries

I built the battery electric loco in these photographs to fit a Hornby “Smoky Joe” chassis some years ago.

Blackcloud Estate Light Railway No.7, at work on the Castle Hill Quarry Tramway.

It was one of the older British made mechanisms and never a as good a runner as the later Chinese versions so it seldom got used on my Gn15 layouts.

Two locos, one wagon? The diesel must have failed and be getting assistance from No.7.

As a second loco for use on the Castle Hill Quarry layout it now rides on a wagon chassis pulled by fishing line. Problem solved!

Note to self – Buy a decent camera!
