These are starter live steam locos designed for the beginner on a budget. Originally created and built in the 1980s under the Mamod brand when it was still owned by the founding Malins family, these famous locos have carried on in production in the UK since the early 1990's by MSS. More of these little locos have been sold than any other live steam garden railway model loco over the last 30 years and they are still popular today because they are afordable and full of charm and appeal.
Available as a Side Tank or a Saddle Tank the MSS locomotive is complemented by a full range of tenders and rolling stock, available under the MSS Rolling Stock page. The Side Tank locos are also available in sets, complete with rolling stock and track, under the MSS Sets page. Self-assembly kits for the keen modeller are also available.
Coming in 32mm (for O Gauge or SM32 track) and 45mm (G45, G1 or G Scale track) each built loco is tested prior to leaving the manufacturers and comes with a full warranty.
