The home of Simplex locomotives

As proud successors to Motor Rail Ltd and Simplex Mechanical Handling Ltd who manufactured some of the best known and rugged light industrial locomotives, Alan Keef Ltd are able to offer full technical back-up to existing Simplex narrow gauge railway locomotive users.

We have supplied a number of new Simplex locomotives for both the home and export markets.  In addition to the supply of new light railway locomotives we regularly recondition existing older locomotives by fitting new engines, clutches, reconditioned gearboxes and wheelsets along with new bodywork to suit customers specific requirements. This can include a basic steam-outline style if required. The reconditioned locomotive option often provides a highly viable alternative to buying a new diesel locomotive for some customers.

Alan Keef Ltd is able to supply a full range of spare parts for all Simplex locomotives, with most regularly used parts available from stock for next day delivery.  

As well as the supply of spare parts, we are also able to offer re-power packages for existing locomotives to replace the older Dorman engines with more modern alternatives. This facility can be extended to new transmission units if required.
