These power bogies come as an almost ready to run unit using a 25:1 gearbox. The only job left to do is cut it down to your desired wheelbase and fix the two halves together. Each half is marked at 5mm intervals with a half etch line to help the reduction process. The bogie also comes with a full length of chain and 8 screws.

These power bogies are “ready-to-run” in as much as they are not in kit form. They can have power fed to the motor in whatever way suits your railway. If you run track fed models, you will need to add your own wheel pickups.
