I had pre-ordered a Hornby Class 20 at #46, but when it seems that the mechanism may not be upto the Class 31 standard but just the motor bogie like the Clsss 73, well I canceled the order &will wait t ose what actually happens.
It is a pity the Hornby site & no doubt others, do not give the type of mechanism, etc - 5 pole skewed motor means nothing by itself. Does it mean bogie mounted like the Class 73 or a centrally mounted motor driving both bogies via cardan shafts?
