Roanoke Miniature Locomotives

cover photo

Roanoke began manufacturing miniature locomotives in 1998, mainly for 7 1/4" gauge railways, from a small factory in North Devon. The early locomotives were primarily powered by small petrol engines, either with a sit-in cab or hauling a sit-on tender. In addition, the company built a 2ft gauge vertical-boiler steam locomotive and some narrow gauge outline steam locomotives for 7 1/4" gauge railways. The company also manufactured passenger coaches and wagons and railway chassis for miniature railways, and built to order various steam road vehicles including traction engines and steam lorries, up to 6" scale. Gradually, the business was taken on by the next generation of the family and the new owners started to change direction from 2007. The final locomotive was supplied in 2011, after some 70 locomotives had been built. This book provides information on all of the known railway locomotives manufactured by the company.
