A Galloping Goose concept on Five

Based on the idea of a Galloping Goose I imagined a two foot gauge Main box car chassis reused with a Commer lorry power unit, rear platform and cab. I had salvaged four 24 volt 120 watt Chinese electric scooter motors and these have proved to be successful to power this model that can take a man in the pay load space. Those big wheels, coil springs and rubber mountings make a very comfortable ride on five inch gauge.

Running Narrow Gauge Heaven costs me £20/month. Will you help cover the costs?
