Re: New layout - Staffordshire

So I'm in the process of cleaning and testing my locos. One thing that I have found is that the loco for my Lima Intercity hst is screeching a lot. Will a good clean remedy this?

I'm a 90's child, so my layout will consist of an intercity swallow hst, a sprinter and a freight train pulled by a class 90. The coal wagons won't be on a running freight train. I had 2 ideas ...
