Hi All

The Fleischmann T3 loco I converted to DCC in this thread T3 DCC Conversion

has a slight bend in the Smokestack -Chimney

I have another one of these Locos in better condition but the Smokestack is Bent Much Much more, It wouldn't be to bad if it was bent back towards the cab but its bent sideways . The rest of the loco is in very good condition

What would you recommend for a fix


The body is cast metal of some sort and dates back to 1956

The Main Screw that holds the body to the chassis is also inside the smokestack

Hi All

Well after converting the original T3 and the BR65 I should Know the difference between the two

The T3 has the plastic body and the BR65 has the Metal cast body
I feel like a complete drongo

So it was easy to fix -once I had got the bent Screw out - which was holding the stack at a nice 15 degree angle to the side

Straightened the screw and glued the stack back on - put the screw back -bobs your uncle


Regards Zmil
