The story of the "Scamp" - the little loco with a big heart


The “Scamp” is a 71/4” gauge ride-on, narrow gauge outline i/c locomotive, based on the ‘Lister’ industrial locomotive. Usually built as a petrol-electric, around 100 have been constructed up to August 2020.

It is a small locomotive, which can be easily partially disassembled to fit in most car boots, and kits of laser-cut or machined parts are available to expedite construction. 

In this very good value book, “Scamp’s” designer Colin Edmondson tells of the design’s development, there is a chapter on how to build one (but no plans) and much more. 42 A4 format pages, full of colour photographs, and much to enjoy.
