QUOTE smooth as silk but it couldnt pull the skin of a rice pudding. i took it into a shop and they said it needed remagnatizing

Sounds like my Wrenn City of Birmingham. Wrenn collectors should stop reading now!

I cut into the chassis on the far side of the motor to make space for an X04 magnet. Then I created new "arms" to connect this to the original magnet and apply the magnetic field around the armature. This did improve the traction. It was a long time ago and I was young. I had never heard of neo what's it magnets, I'm not sure anyone had back then.

I still have it and ran it a few times before switching to DCC. As a model it just doesn't cut it compared to just about anything else I've got so I shall not be converting it to DCC but I won't part with it for sentimental reasons.
