'Merseysider' is a 0-4-0 diesel electric locomotive built in 1964 by Ruston & Hornsby for the the Park Gate steelworks in Rotherham. It was acquired by the Talyllyn Railway in 1969 and used up until 2016. It operated under loco number No.8 during it's time on the Talyllyn Railway. 

This price is an estimate and may be subject to change before being finalised at the 16mm NGM show in Peterborough in April.Estimate includes RC and Sound.

The model has been designed and built to be equal in performance to our steam models. It features a beefy motor and drive-train and at almost 3 kg is quite a heavyweight with performance to match. It will pull the heaviest trains at realistic speeds and keep going for several hours. It comes as standard fitted with radio control.

Please note - You will only be charged £50 deposit at this stage. After this is paid, we will then contact you in relation to the payment of the balance, when the loco arrives. Please ensure a telephone number is provided for us to contact you.

Make it something extra special with the optional onboard sound system. Hear the engine ticking over when you switch the sound on. Open the throttle and the air brakes release and the engine sound increases with the speed of the loco. Sound the horn as you press a third switch on the transmitter. Just select the 'with sound' option above.

Merseysider is available in any Roundhouse colour, which are all shown on a colour chart above. Please select your desired colour from the dropdown menu. Colours may vary on the model to those in the picture.
