i built this kit in the seventies can't remember what conversion it was and i still have it. . my loco had a K's Mk 1
motor which burnt out i am replacing it with a hornby Mk 7 motor . i have now fitted tender pick-ups and extra added weight to the loco and tender.
i replaced all the handrails and buffers and the outside frames are part of the chassis and the boiler is removable.
i put two brush springs in the slot in the bogie to provide better stability. when you come to paint it remember precision paints
do all the different shades of green for all periods. good luck, if you need any help PM me. i can e-mail you some pics of my loco.
