Hi there,

I'm modelling in N Gauge but I think this might be a problem which other gauges have encountered, hence placing this post in the Station Concourse where all might pick up on it.

Although I don't have a layout to run my locos on yet, I have been programming the chips on a 1 metre length of track (Code 55) and then gently running them in on a rolling road. Among my stable are 3 No. 2-6-2 Praires (2 Dapol and 1 Graham Farish).

The GF and one of the Dapols perform flawlessly, as do the rest of my locos, but the other Dapol staggers drunkenly both down the track and on the rolling road with a side-to-side motion.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this and what the remedy might be ?? I suspect it might be a back-to-back wheel spacing issue but haven't checked that yet as it will require dismantling the loco.

Thanks in advance for all help and advice,
