This popular class of locomotives was introduced by English Electric in 1957, under the new modernisation scheme. The initial batch of twenty engines were so successful that in total 228 engines of this type were built, with English Electric subcontracting much of the mechanical side to Vulcan foundry and Robert Stephenson & Hawthorn.

The Maxitrak locomotive is a working replica of the full size in 5" gauge. It has four motors operated through an electronic control system with remote handset. Motors drive the wheels direct through gearing, axles are fitted with bronze axle boxes. The body is a fine scale GRP moulding incorporating all the detail work to cab, roof and bonnet.

The bonnet and cab fronts incorporate light mouldings that can be finished to original style or converted for route indicator boxes etc. A super detail kit is also available.


The Maxitrak engines supplied by Mini Train Systems are fitted with a number of extra features to improve driver convenience and comply with Australian standards (AS3533). MTS engines are tested and warranted for 12 months against defects in materials or labour. These engines feature:

  • Key operated disable switch
  • Power connector for driving car mounted battery
  • 'Break away' disable feature
  • Improved Hand Held tether control.
  • MTS MU (Multiple Unit) Control System. This enables two or more engines to be coupled together and driven by the one driver. Power and control jumper cables link the locos together. Compatible with all MTS MU engines.
