George Battery Loco 2012
By D Osborne
This loco was made by George Weedon for the use of training youngsters.
The small battery loco was mainly renovated and restored by D Osborne.
The only original parts to this maybe the wheels and the bonnet. The rest of it was a simple wooden chassis
The club had new frames made by laser cutting services, after this the budget for this was spent !!! . A second hand wheel chair motor was used (Alan L). The cab end and detail, motor controller was made and donated by (Dave Osborne). The man in the cab was an action man donated by (Mike B)
The new design for this loco was from the diesel loco Elizabeth on the island of Alderney. This is where Dave O got the inspiration about its shape and design even down to the mugs in the cab.
As it was before below. Left a wooden box and fibreglass Body. Right the start of the new cab end
The new cab body now starting to take shape
See the cab detail, I like the tea cups idea taken from the real loco pictures See further below

The full name for this Loco was given to the Hymek "George Weedon", So this was simply shortened to "George".
