Piko 45mm Gauge Four Wheel Motor Blocks

Left - BR94/194 Block : Centre - BR218/Taurus Block : Right - BR218/110/204/298 Block

Self-contained power trucks as used by Piko under their G scale range, ideal and economical running gear for either modern diesel and electric outline locomotives, or older units fitted with tramway skirts.

All have approxmately 98mm wheelbase, all wheel drive/pickup and sliding pickup shoes. The Taurus and BR110 units are identical except for the cosmetic face of the wheels (see picture). See datasheets for more detailed dimensions.

PLEASE NOTE, Piko have now entirely changed their production over to the newer ball bearing type, and the original plain bearing blocks for the Taurus (Pk36100) and BR218 (Pk36101) are no longer available. Where replacement blocks are needed, the current production types (see below) slot straight in as like-for-like replacements. Some service parts for plain bearing versions are still available, please enquire if you need wheelsets/motors/etc.

Power trucks and motor blocks are all in our £5 Shipping band for any combination and quantity, see the purchase page for details. All consignments are sent Royal Mail signed for / independent courier depending on weight and value.

Spare Parts :

For many lower powered and light duty locomotives, a single power truck is often enough - we hold stock of most types of Piko wheelsets to allow users to build up matching dummy trucks, please enquire for availability.
