Millie is a small diesel outline battery loco built on an IP Engineering budget chassis which has been modified by fitting metal gears and 4 wheel drive.
Underneath the loco is the on /off switch and a 2.1mm charging socket for the 4.8 volt 1500 mah Nimh batteries which are located in the cab and hidden neatly away under the dashboard.
A Planet 5 radio control and ESC for speed and forward / reverse are fitted under the bonnet.
Millie will soon have a sister locomotive called Maggie which will be the same basic design but without the cab. Both locos will be available in kit form (body only)
Both versions of this loco can be fitted with either fixed speed manual control, a manual speed controller or full radio control, all with forward and reverse.
