Re: co-co derailing

Thanks for the replies. I am not able to relay the track, so as all the other rolling stock navigates the bend with no problem I think I will retire the diesel and stick with steam locos and a couple of dmu/emu's. Bit of a cop-out but heyho !!

co-co derailing

On my outer loop I have some flexitrack with a join on a bend. I cannot change the track. I have a class 60 diesel that when it goes over the join one set of wheels on each bogie derail.

Re: Great Electric Train show

Got 3 old coaches for my heritage train. Also saw the Hornby 2019 Christmas wagon for £14.50, a lot less than the adverts on eBay !!
It was a lot less crowded than Ally Pally which made the day pleasant
And I entered the draw for the Hornby Coca-Cola train set

Re: Ideas on second hand coach stock

I was thinking about 3 coaches as a start. Had in mind a Pullman (maybe a dining coach), LMS maroon and a Southern green. I think I need one to be a brake but would it matter having more than one brake. Didn't want any blue !!

Re: sticking wheels

Had a similar problem with a 4-6-2 loco where the trailing wheels got jammed in the chassis. Gentle persuasion got them back down. Worth a look
