Description

Greenbat was the trade name for the railway locomotives built by Greenwood & Batley Company in Leeds. The company specialised in electric locomotives, particularly battery-powered types for use in mines and other hazardous environments. Customers were able to purchase a Greenbat BEV locomotive in a variety of gauges from 18 inches up to standard gauge.

A particular feature of these locomotives was their removable battery boxes. This allowed the customer to purchase an additional battery box that could be charged up while the locomotive was working. Thus the locomotive’s discharged battery could be swapped for a freshly charged one with the minimum delay.

Our new Greenbat BEV locomotive has been designed by Harry Billmore who based the model on one currently working on the Steeple Grange railway in Derbyshire (although some liberties have been taken to allow an eighteen inch gauge to run on 32mm gauge track). The locomotive features four wheel drive from a 12 volt micro motor and gearbox. We have found the model runs quite happily either on either a 6 or 9 volt battery.
