I found having 3 axles a problem as sometimes the centre axle caused problems with some points. Cured by enlarging the centre axle bearing so that the axle was basically floating and free to move up and down.

With a lot of Dapol wagons I found the problems with wobbly wheels. I did not know this when I bought them. I bought a Dapol replacement wheel pack and found on testing that the 'yield' of acceptable wheels was about the same as the number of axles in a pack of Hornby wheels. So the plan is to replace all the wheels with Hornby ones the main problem being erratic supply.

No I am not going to replace the Dapol wagons because basically modifying them is still cheaper than buying other makes, plus very few wagon types are available and I don't mind having 'generic' wagons.
