Hi,

Does anyone else have the problem of locos slowing down through second radius curves?

I have a Mallard that slows down through 2nd radius curves and it annous the hell out of me.
Is there a fix?

Thanks,

Sir G.

Thanks for all the replys.

I am running the loco (It's a new Mallard, DCC ready) with no rolling stock on it. The sontroller is ancient, so that maybe the problem.

Yeah. I read up on the Hornby decoder and it has it. Was asking 'cause now is the time to decide whether I need to rethink my layout before it is all layed and ballasted.

Yeah. I suppose if its slowing then there must be exsessive wear on part of the wheels. I'll see how much play I have with the cormers. I should turn in earlier and run the corner smoothly round shouldn't I? It is already flexi track.
