Models

We have many models in the club, including locmotives, stationary engines, boats and aeroplanes. Some are owned by individuals, some by the club and some bequeathed to the club.

  • EO3 - electric locomotive used through the Otira tunnel. The tunnel is 5 miles long and at a steep 1:33 grade, so steam locos could not be used. This model was built by Norm Spedding and is 7¼" guage.

 

 

 

 

 

  • Model of a Guayaquil and Quito Railway narrow gauge loco. Built by Gavin Hargreaves. 7¼" gauge.
