train is converted to
Electric Boat Motor
Paignton Zoo collaborated with Lynch Motors to convert one of their iconic miniature trains to run on electricity through the use of rechargeable batteries. The miniature train was previously powered by a petrol engine.

In addition, Lynch Motors were even able to help colour match the unit which has now been painted in the yellow and blue as Mo Smith, the Paignton Zoo train drivers is a proud supporter of Torquay United!

'The famous Jungle Express now runs on cleaner, greener electricity.'
Being one of the first ever commercial miniature train conversion projects for Lynch Motors, Trevor Lees said: "It was a fantastic experience to work with one of the South West's most popular attractions and convert an old, petrol powered engine into a clean, green modern electric train. We are very pleased to have worked with Paignton Zoo."
Paignton Zoo are hoping the new miniature train will be far cheaper to run, greener and more environmentally friendly as well as being far quieter when compared with the old engine. The iconic train dates back to the late 1930s so Lynch Motors really have helped give the old train a new lease of life.

With 10 ¼ inch gauge tracks which run a third of a mile around Paignton Zoo's lake, the tiny train averages just over 80 miles a week during the peak summer seasons and around 120,000 visitors take a ride every year.
