The Gogo tractor is the latest loco fresh from being rebuilt. this loco is basicly a fordson tractor on a railway chassis. it is extremely powerful and very heavy, but due to problems with the gearbox which means it sometimes doesn't like changing gear and the nature of its worm drive which means we can't shunt it easily, it is more of a showpiece then a workhorse.
