Doncaster, UK - It's the New Year and our friends at  Roundhouse Engineering  have announced their two new locomotives for 2018. For the fans of live steam we have a return to a familiar face of times past with a steam tram that follows in the footsteps of the earlier "Stanley". Say hello to "Clarence".

This boxy 0-4-0 is sure to please as it trundles around the garden railway. Roundhouse states that it is not a particular prototype model but typical of the style of trams that could have be found all over Europe. This means the live steamer has a basic canvas upon which they can add the details to take "Clarence" from simple to as extravagant as they desire to go along with your urban or inter-urban modelling tastes.

Production orders are being taken and a plain unit (no r/c) is set to be around 1700.00 British Pounds which as of January 2018 is around 2200.00 US dollars. "Clarence" is available by pre-order in any of the standard Roundhouse liveries. You can get more information at their website  https://www.roundhouse-eng.com.

Roundhouse stated that you will be able to see a production model in action at the April Garden Railway Show held each spring in Peterborough, UK

Also announced was the small diesel locomotive (electric) “Merseysider” which was used on the Talyllyn Railway from 1969 to 2016.Merseysider
