Which gearbox should you choose, and how do you go about it? Starting with the kind of loco you want to build, decide what work you want it to do, how much room you have inside it and the kind of speeds at which you want to run it.

You can tailor your power unit to match your exact operational needs as well as the space available. Advanced CAD technology and incredibly tough miniature delrin gears allow you to employ large motors in small spaces. Many of our designs are available in articulated form that further increases their usefulness.

Decision time! If you’re unsure which combination is best, our KITBUILDERS' GUIDE shows some typical examples.

If you're an experienced modeller, go straight to our PLANNING PAGE to make your selection.
