QUOTE (upnick @ 4 Jun 2008, 05:59) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Hi all,

I have a Duchess of Hamilton graham farish loco and the valve gear has come off the rods without damaging it, basically it needs to be fitted back on but is there an easy way to do it without causing any damage and for the two sides to be in sync and work correctly.

Many thanks.


***The valve gear should be 90 degrees out of phase left Vs right. I sympathise with the problem as the way they made this loco / fix this together is very weak and its prone to disintegration & damage - I have repaired a couple of these and its a B of a job to get perfect and as strong as it should be as the methods & materials they used aren't the best.

If its a newish loco, personally I'd send it to Bachmann with a request to replace the chassis. You'll be far from the first to do so!!
