I am trying to get the body off to reverse the pickup wires. I have put a credit card in all 4 corners of the body and the body clips are clear of the chassis but I can not get the body to seperate am I missing something? is there any screws securing the body which has to be released first, any help much appreciated. All I seem to be able to do is damage various pipes. Since handling I have had hand rails front grab rails and windscreen wiper fall off !

It is only the body side clips that hold the body on, it is just a case of easing the chassis out, but I found it easier if the credit cards are closer to the centre of the body.

I had one of mine out today, running on Alan's layout here in Victoria, BC, Canada. It ran a treat with 12 conflat/3 planks on behind it. Still debating getting enough Flatrol P's for making the CONDOR...

I had the same issue and broke off most of the pipework trying. I could free the sides and not the ends. I carefully kept rocking the body from side to side at one end. Eventually the front came free at one end and it was enough to free the fames and release the opposite end. On mine it appeared that the glue applied to the buffer shanks had run on the chassis block. . You could see minor glue stains on the frames at the front. Then the body did not want to go back and appeared to bow out from my attempts to release. I had to leave the body off with some weight applied to flatten the side again. All fine now. Bring back good old screw fittings.

Good luck

I agree the underneath plumbing is very delicate. The first comment I got when running mine round the club layout was that a buffer was missing (into oblivion), then one of the cab handrails fell off - I did manage to find that though - these would appear to be showcase models, not 'playing trains' models.

Still to rewire to go the right way!

Rewiring is straightforward, the black and red were the opposite way round (from the pics on the Hattons printout) on the two models i did for a friend at the club, swapped over as described and problem sorted. I'll post a couple of pics tomorrow as I've weathered them now. I'm not a fan of the early green diesels (especially oddballs!) but i must admit they do look the part. Almost tempted. . :no:

In more than one photo of different locomotives it does appear that one of the horns is installed at an angle facing outboard... :huhclear:

Maybe this is the arrangement is on the Co end, while the Bo end has them both facing in the direction of travel?

That'll do for me. Thanks!!

Definitely---from a point of local historical significance alone. 17A based in late 50's,early 60's.The second main line diesels to work the Midland main line--regularly on St. Pancras--Manchester trains via the now disappeared Peak line--the first being 10000 & 10001.They worked in pairs,using ,as I recall, the interconnecting doors. There was some alteration to the cab windows after that---& the Hattons model is post whenever that was. A pair would look great behind a rake of maroon Mark 1's--no yellow apron ,though. A case made for temptation ?
