Jupiter - Denver & Rio Grande diesel-mechanical locomotive Nr. 50


For some time we have wanted to offer a complementary locomotive to the Planet, specifically for customers who are looking for a more robust and more powerful locomotive, which is also built locally here in Germany. After the successful introduction of our "Zugspitzbahn" locomotive, we took all the good experience and built this into the Jupiter which is now available.

The locomotive is based on the Denver & Rio Grande diesel-mechanical locomotive No 50. The Jupiter is similar to the Planet, but it offers a traditional frame with sprung axle boxes and individual bearings for the axles and motors. There is also an electronic controller with joy stick hand set. You can choose between standard 2 motor model or increase this to 4 motors, for additional pulling power. There is also a dynamic break option which makes the loco much more controllable. Please find prices for these options below. The Jupiter is available in red or green.

  • Traditional frame (based on our 2-motor locomotive chassis)
  • Axles and motors running in their own bearings
  • 4 axle boxes with individual  springing
  • Removable body to ease maintenance and transport
  • Separate battery box for easy placement and removal of the battery
  • Electronic controller with joystick handset (Switch with key - on/off, forward/reverse switch, horn switch)
  • Horn
  • Dummy horn
  • functioning headlamp (switch in cab)

If you would like more information about our locomotives or would like to talk about the options, just give us a call.

This locomotive is not suitable for commercial or club use ( continuous running). If you are looking for a locomotive for these uses, please contact us. We will find a solution for your requirements.
