The Launch of the Mamod Stirling Locomotive

After 3 years of research and development, Mamod is excited to announce the launch of the new Mamod Stirling Locomotive. Named after the Scottish engineer, Mamod had ambitious plans to make this engine one of the most technically advanced of all Mamod locomotives. And it has not disappointed.

New Machinery

Mamod purchased new machinery so that we could design more technical components in-house. As a result, we could ensure the highest quality control over the entire manufacturing process. Consequently, we revisited the original designs of the Stirling, to see what improvements could be made with our new manufacturing capabilities. This large engine required lots of power. We achieved this by fitting dual 14mm cylinders in addition to a new internal firing poker style to efficiently heat the large 230ml boiler.

Have a closer look at some of the components here.

And here is a flashback to the early days of the Mamod Stirling development. Filmed back in 2017, much has changed in the Stirling design.
