Special Gearboxes

There are some applications where even the gearboxes in our standard range may not meet your requirements. That's why we've developed a number of special gearboxes.

The HiFlier is custom-designed to enable you to fit a large can motor into a locomotive (an OO/HO Pacific is a classic case) without fouling the wheels.

The ultra-compact HumpShunter is ideal for tiny engines (such as the LNER Y8) with low boiler and sidetanks.

The double-articulated LoLoader provides ultimate flexibility with a variety of contorted configurations. It's particularly suited to small diesel shunters, where the low-profile top section of the gearbox, allows the worm to sit right back inside the cab's control console, leaving as much of the bonnet space as possible for the motor.
