Planet (5") and Planet 2 (7.25")

Planet (5") and Planet 2 (7.25")

The Planet is based on the 2ft gauge light industrial locomotives manufactured by FC Hibbard and Co at their Park Royal Works in London. The Maxitrak model features an all steel bonnet and full cab and incorporates the distinctive Planet radiator and makers plates. These engines were common in industrial service, both narrow and standard gauge, and were found at many Naval dockyards.

The Maxitrak Planet is available in either the standard 5" Gauge, and now a much-larger version in 7.25" Gauge.

The Maxitrak locomotive drives motors on each axle through an all gear drive. It is also fitted with spring suspension, full electronic control and a wealth of detail. It is capable of hauling four adults on level track and will run all day on one charge depending on grade, load and battery selected.


Maxitrak engines supplied by Mini Train Systems are fitted with a number of extra features to improve driver convenience and comply with Australian standards (AS3533). MTS engines are tested and warranted for 12 months against defects in materials or labour. All MTS Planets feature:

  • Maxitrak's optional headlight
  • Key operated disable switch
  • Power connector for driving car mounted battery
  • 'Break away' disable feature
  • Hand Held tether control. This replaces Maxitrak's standard cab mounted controls.
  • MTS MU (Multiple Unit) Control System. This enables two or more Planets to be coupled together and driven by the one driver. Power and control jumper cables link the locos together. Compatible with all MTS MU engines.


The Planets are available in:
  • Maroon
  • Green
  • Cane Train Yellow
