Hi folks, 

just thought i’d pass on that if you want to fit a flywheel motor to the D16 that X6627 seems to fit without modification. My D16 used to stutter a bit but is now silky smooth.  X6970 (for the K1) also fits but are like rocking horse poop.


Tally ho!

I've just fitted one of these, thanks for the tip. It just slots straight in and running is much smoother with no jerk when pulling away. I meant to fit a K1 motor but didn't get around to ordering one before they all disappeared.

I think I'll end up doing the same with mine, but what I have found is adding extra weight to the tender, some lead from an old 4 wheel Hornby 4 wheel coach to be precise, helps. With smoother running. Seems to run a lot smoother with the extra adhesion (if that's what you can call it), I think the tender pickups like the extra weight. Haven't noticed half as much stutter since putting the weight in & stopping is a lot smoother. 


Here she is any way, slightly repainted from the horrible factory weathering & with a couple details added, not that it shows what the extra tender weight does... She is a looker!
