Re: J72 split chassis motor

Bigmet.
I think he's talking about a secondhand loco, could be wrong. I've got a split chassis J72 69023 that wore it's bearings out, so I made up and fitted some wiper pick ups. It now runs OK but sounds much like the coffee grinder mentioned by D605Eagle.

Re: Hattons Wholesale

I agree with Mountain. Hattons ain't altruists and these other businesses will be wanting a profit.

If you're down south, GW Models in Lancing, Sussex does them. He'll post them out too.

Re: Looking at electronic componants

Do you have 'Radio Spares' over there? Also known as RS Components. If so, they have all types of caps, including smd which I find are great space savers for fitting lights.

Re: N gauge control

99.9% with Bigmet on this. The only thing is that I wouldn't bother with Lenz. Nothing wrong with them, but I've found that Zimo can give smoother starts, stops and slow running.

Re: Bachmann Manor class dilemma

I've fitted pick ups by screwing them to the sides of the chassis blocks, but another thought is to try graphite powder. This is a really good conductor and lubricant.

Re: Hornby's poor build quality

That's really bad. Do you think it'd be an idea to fix the other side before it breaks? Like preventive maintenance.
