  • 45xx jerky running

    I like this model but have found that its running can be poor at times with jerky motion. I think it may be due to the split connecting rod which does not remain straight causing problems. Does anyone know any way to improve the running.

    Regards

    Have you had it from new or is it second hand? if second hand, it may be that it was taken apart and re assembled incorrectly as the wheels should be kept fairly in line by the gears

      Had it from new Hailstone. The wheels are pretty much in line but because of the slop in the connecting rods, the two halves of the connecting rods get slightly out of line when the loco is moving.

      Cheers
