Some praise is called for regarding this model, despite what I feel is the strange omission of a parts and assembly diagram. My sole specimen was running very sweetly - as it has from new - when a strange scratchy noise became evident. So I set it aside for investigation, and the disassembly and reassembly process proved to be very simple indeed. With a bogie out of the chassis block a very mangled coil spring was found lodged above an axle where it was contacting the wheelback, and so the 'fix' was about as easy as they come. (I think the spring is from a Kadee, but neither of the Kadees on the loco lacked a spring, so it must have dropped off something else on the layout.)

So that only adds to this model's charms: construction very good from the perspective of user access to rectify any problem that may in future arise.
