We manufacture "special to purpose" machinery for a range of industries and we can provide a comprehensive solution to your requirements in the electro-mechanical field. Having no electrical content but showcasing our mechanical skills, this miniature steam locomotive was completed to an “air running” chassis stage.  i.e. It was turning over on compressed air.

Evening Star was the last steam locomotive to be built by British Rail.  This 7 1/4” Gauge, 1 1/2” to the foot scale,  miniature steam locomotive was built for a private client.

The castings for this magnificent locomotive were supplied by Jim Vass Miniature Railways (See the link on the Home page). It was nearly 5 foot long and the chassis weighed more than 60Kg before the boiler was mounted.  The picture shows the chassis just before the wheels turned for the first time on test using compressed air.  The prototype "Evening Star" is housed in the National Railway Museum at York as a static exhibit.  The completed miniature locomotive is now in operation after receiving a boiler from a specialist boiler maker.

We can undertake small scale fabrications to meet your requirements, the portable loose box below was supplied to a competition carriage driving customer to meet the need for temporary stabling at events lasting several days.

The loose box was designed to be carried on the large horse transporter where space was at a premium. However it had to break down into panels which could be lifted and assembled by young  grooms.

We have also designed and produced electrical control panels for a number of customers. The picture below shows an experimental, portable water treatment plant. The prototype was built to test an advanced water treatment process for a Government department.

The cabinet houses an Ozone generator, pump , electrical control gear and activated carbon filters. The unit is self contained and only requires a mains electricity supply to operate.

We manufacture a range of fabricated parts for a local company who market a range of 1/4 scale electrically  powered cars for young people.  These are sold as kits for self assembly by a competent DIYer. Follow the link to Real Life Toys on our Home Page for more information.
