I now have my Rails SECR class D , propose to use it pulling 3 coaches. Loco seems to “rise” over my peco insulfrog 3 way point when traction tyres go over “dead” frog , sometimes it stops. Any thoughts on how to cure? Also has anyone out there changed the driver for the none traction type? Appreciate haulage will suffer , but wonder if anyone has encountered problems when changing wheels and how they resolved them . Cheers!

 

First check probably to see that the back to backs are consistent. The traction tyred wheels may be different to the ones that go through ok, in which case if you can ease them on the axles to the same spacing - which could cure it.

looks lovely but perhaps that inside motion needs a little toning down.  

 

All the very best

Looking at my Wainwright liveried one, where they have painted red over the 'plated' safety valve parts, the paint is a little thin and the metallic surface shows through making it look a bit plasticy. I think that I shall apply a little extra red paint over this  just to increase the density.

 

Also, they have painted the dummy coupling hooks with fairly bright silver, which might look ok on the preserved one which gets regularly burnished in the museum, but not on the others. Perhaps a thin coat of aluminium or gun metal to tone this down would be appropriate.

 

All the best

Has no one else received their 4S-027-003,  British Railways Sunshine Black ?

 

It looks very nice.

Mine arrived on Saturday, so a few are making it out. It was actually part of an order with the SR olive green version, and I found it slightly amusing that they were processed and dispatched less than one hour apart, so they arrived in two separate parcels at exactly the same time...

 

I haven't checked if this is the most economical postage method at their weight and size, but it just seemed a little funny. However, as they arrived safely (minus each requiring a left rear buffer pushed back into position) I'm not going to complain! :)  I am particularly partial to the BR sunshine black.

Yep, mine can last Friday. Greeted by the tender buffers floating around in the box. At least it is he right shade of black. Does run well despite only the rear tender wheels touching the track.

Apparently Dapol has been sending Rails the locos in small batches so they can only ship what and how many they are sent. The SECR locos arrived first so went out first. The rest will come in due order.

...... whatever seemingly random order that may be !

 

I saw someone on FB had received their BR Lined black version!

Payment for my grey example was taken today, so I expect to see in the next week. After the disappointments some people have had with livery application, I'm praying that even grey is too simple to be cocked up...

My Wainwright-liveried example was posted today, however I didn't pre-order until quite late in the process - only a few months ago. Hopefully the trip across the pond isn't too traumatic (and Canada Customs doesn't leave it on a shelf for a while) and it's in my hands in a couple of weeks.

My BR lined Black one arrived a couple of days ago - very nice...  Can't easily do any pictures at the moment though...

Was looking at my bank account because it's bill day and another payment has gone to rails so I guess the Southern sunshine one is coming! This one has no lining to mess up at least just potentially over sized letters and numbers but we'll see!

Fingers crossed mine isn't far behind! I pre-ordered as soon as they were announced!

Has anyone received the BR black version with early crest yet (31574)? Mine is with sound so I guess it will be a little while yet.

Finally got them to ship my Southern green one today. Turns out they were waiting for me to add items to the order but I had already done it 2 weeks ago when I last checked the order status with one of their customer service employees. Left hand didn’t know what the right hand was doing! They really need a Trunk service like Hatton’s.

I have tried to phone Rails today (fifteen attempts) but their number was constantly engaged which I find a bit odd.

Send an E.Mail ??   They are moving back into the new shop I think this week, plus lots of new stuff just arrived from various suppliers.  I spoke to them today.

I've just had notification that my dcc ready BR early crest has been dispatched this morning.

Annoying that the safety valve base has escaped the grey paint (it was ok on the sample), now we need to find a paint match for the grey.
