poor running locos



blog-0096568001328044613.jpghad my box of stuff out today to see what worked and what didn't.

never realised that i had so many locos chipped for zero1

now if only i knew what the numbers for each was

the only locos i could find that would run on the old DC controller was a Hornby GWR Pannier tank and my detailed Hornby 47490 in large logo as Bristol Bath Road.

the tank was too small to fit a chip and i never bothered with the 47

the tank took ages to get to run smoothly, i had to drag it round the track with another tank engine!

the 47 even at full power just crawls along. I cleaned the wheels and contacts and sprayed a little WD40 and it ran slightly better but won't haul more than a couple of coaches :(

ideas on a postcard

AVOID using WD40 on models at all costs. It's the worst possible oil you could choose for the task....
