Hornby Virgin HST problem?

Postby class222emu » Sat Aug 06, 2011 9:38 pm

Hi,
I have one of the old virgin hst from the virgin train set its about 10 years old and recently the train seems to wheelspin every time you put even light power on and it hardly moves when just powering itself and the wheels spin aimlessly, when pulling its carriages it doesnt move at all but the wheels and axels still spin. I dont know what could be the problem

any suggestion????? could it be that the traction tires need replacing???

thanks

Your traction tyres need replacing.
The Rides the "REASON" the "DESTINATION" is only an "EXCUSE" :-).
