Just bought this train of EBay which wrapped in the box was a coppe type flat shaped article.

Inside the Tender was a Plastic Box thing which I assume the copper strip fits into.

Anybody got any diagram how this fits Please

I've had one of these for years!

From memory - there is a plastic 'sound box' inside the tender and an arm which hangs down to the rear axle. The end of this arm is coated with a 'sandpaper' like substance. Around the rear axle is a metal (copper?) clip, part of which extends slightly and scrapes against the 'sandpaper' arm causing the 'chuff chuff' sound to be made.

I don't remember the 'arm' being copper coloured (thought it was black) but I may be wrong.

Have found a copy of the original loco service sheet online but the tender is not included.

Will have another look when I get home later!

Hi NERBob,

That's the site I found too - really useful source - but I could only find service sheet details for the loco itself not the tender. Did Hornby ever include the tender on one of these sheets?
