Re-motoring a Hornby HST (XPT) loco

Recommended Posts

Hi all, can anyone help me  how to tackle re-motoring a Hornby HST, in Australia XPT .I want to to do away with the pancake motor and replace the bogies to geared bogies with motor in the middle  and drive shafts to the bogies,that way I can do away with the other loco being powered, the locos are very old, had trouble at the train show on the club layout.


The pic is of the 1.1 scale XPT close to the HST hope someone can help in the project.


Be great if someone can steer me in the direction.


Many thanks Tony from down under
