Planet Locomotive

The Planet Diesel was supplied to the Ashover Light Railway by F.C.Hibberd & Co. Ltd In 1948 and was fitted with a 6 cylinder Perkins engine.

The 5” model is fitted with 2 DC motors, one to each axle, with 12 or 24 volts battery power.

Controls are a simple forward reverse switch and speed potentiometer.

The 7 1/4”- 7 1/2” version has three drive options; a 4 hp single cylinder push button start petrol engine driving either a hydrostatic transmission through a double output Tee box, or an alternator powering 4 or 6 DC axle mounted motors.

Alternatively these motors can be powered directly from a battery.
