The Garratt Locomotive

Site owner Gavin Hamilton has passed away, but the site will continue as before for the time being.

Information compiled and presented by Gavin Hamilton

My ambition is to provide complete photographic coverage of the Garratt type. I have

been very fortunate that many people have freely allowed me to use their photographs.

I still need more pictures, especially anywhere other than South Africa, if you are willing

to share any of your photographs with me (credit will be given) please email me.


I am working on sections dealing with respectively - Commercial Model, Non Commercial Model

and Miniature (can pull at least one person) Garratts. This will not be easy and will probably remain

incomplete because I don't think anyone knows of every one in existence or under construction

Also, I welcome any comments, criticism, updates or suggestions.
