If you remove the dicast block, the hornby class 101 0-4-0 body and dicast block will clip on, but there is a weight required at the front. Hope this help, Kieran :D

With the exception of the L&Y/LMS Pug (ex Dapol) all of Hornby's 0-4-0s have used that chassis since the introduction of GWR 101 some time around 1980.

Hi.

Thanks for all the advice.

Will try to find a 101 body with frame or non runner.

Hi Tiddles,

Missed this one - not been reading everything recently.
There have been so many Hornby 0-4-0 variants over the years, I would suggest at least 30 .......
I have 5 here ....... I understand the 'difficult' chassis quite well now !!

Image

Take the Highland Railways Pug, three different issues with names on the side, then the Calledonian, than the BR, then the ...... and so it goes on.
Most of these have the same chassis design be they from the 1970's to date. The original Caledonian blue pug had wire grab rails and cab roof supports (as seen on mine), current and most later issues were simplified and omitted this detail.
The minor differences were those with outside pistons, and those with just the basic coupling rod. Search Ebay and you'll see many variants coming up for sale giving you the chance to understand what's out there.

My Caledonian has the body off as I've just burnt out the 'forward direction' part of the decoder !

Tiddles, don't be discouraged by this apparent shambles. It will all come together with consummate ease sometime soon. Have a look at some of his earlier threads (St Ivel and earlier) if you do not believe me)

Rocketman ....
She cooks, I eat ........ and I intend to keep it that way !!

For Tiddles and anyone else - add weight to your 0-4-0's. I'm about to add a DCC decoder to GWR 105 and before I get the chip in added lead weight to improve traction in addition to improvements of electrical contact.

Image

On this particular version of the chassis Hornby fix a weight in one of the forward voids. You still have space just inside the cylinders which I've not struggled to fill, but have added a pair of small lead weights. In front of the worm drive there's another void where I've stuck a lead weight standing against the hornby weight, note it must be no wider to clear the body. That leaves a void under the cab which has been filled to the chassis top line.

You have space in this body to add weight along the sides, but must leave space for the motor cradle and motor retaining clip ends. Remember even another 5 grammes of weight can be useful.

Because this will have a decoder mounted above the motor I can't add more weight here, but for analogue operation additional ballast can be stuck in the body or even on the motor using superglue (VERY carefully not to get anything in the motor !!)

The old Triang "Top Tank" and probably the similar clockwork loco bodies, can be slid on top of the 0-4-0 chassis with minimal modifications :)

Has Hornby ever done a Green class 06 with wasp stripes?

No, I do'nt think so. I came up with this one by repainting a BR blue one. I also added flush glazing which was a real swine to fit an added weight to the chassis. Look at all that dust.

Don't know if this helps but I believe the Hornby Percy fits on that chassis as well.
