'GORDON' Loco Kit
This started out as challenge to fit a loco body to an old Triang/Novo Big Big 0-4-0 chassis, but you asked for a chassis to fit the loco. So we've designed one to suit
The loco body kit includes glazed windows and mesh for the radiator grill.
The chassis is 4 wheel drive and includes motor, battery box and forward and reverse switch. All you need to add is paint and glue and a little bit of soldering.

Either together or individually the body and chassis kits are ideal for customising using your imagination and a few items from your 'bits' box
