The McHugh Company offers several 3 foot narrow gauge diesel electric locomotive models to meet the requirements of traveling over lite rail or to provide motive power for heavy tonnage trains. We will also work with your organization to supply a locomotive that will fit the budgetary constraints of your railroad museum or tourist rail line operation. The McHugh Company has also preformed repairs to 3 foot narrow gauge diesel electric locomotives and rail equipment at railroad museums and heritage tourist rail lines.
McHugh – 20 & 30 ton, 3 foot narrow gauge diesel electric locomotives are a single frame unit with two axle wheel sets. The drive axle assembly has a rebuilt reduction gear box with rebuilt traction motor mounted to it. There is also a inner sprocket mounted onto the drive axle and a chain connects to a inner sprocket on the idler axle wheel assembly. These models have one rebuilt diesel engine with rebuilt generator assembly to provide power for the traction travel circuit.
McHugh – 45 & 55 ton, 3 foot narrow gauge diesel electric locomotives are two truck units with four axle wheel sets. The drive axle assembly has a reduction gear box with traction motor mounted to it. There are two options on axle wheel propulsion to the idler axles on these model locomotives. The two axle wheel assemblies can be connected by either an outside side-rod assembly or an inner sprocket assembly with chain. These two options are how the idler axle wheel assembly will receive power from the drive axle. There are two rebuilt diesel engines that are mounted to two rebuilt generators to provide electrical power for the traction travel circuit. The units have full width cabs that provide ample space for two people to be seated in the locomotive.
McHugh – 65 & 80 ton, 3 foot narrow gauge diesel electric locomotives are two truck units with four axle wheel sets. There are four new axle mounted traction motors that provide direct power to each of the four axle wheel assemblies. The two new diesel engines have two new generators mounted to them that provide electrical power for the traction travel circuit. All new electrical components and new parts are also supplied with these units. The truck assemblies are reconditioned with new wheels and roller bearings.
We can also offer as an option to supplying: new traction motors, new main generators, and new diesel engines, on the 3 foot narrow gauge 65 or 80 ton, models is to supply diesel locomotives that are rebuilt with reconditioned components and parts.
2 foot narrow gauge diesel electric Locomotives.
In the future we will be offering a 2 foot narrow gauge diesel electric locomotive.
We have preformed repairs to 2 foot narrow gauge diesel locomotives and rail equipment at a steel mill operation.
