It will be interesting to see how long that "good info" stays on the Hornby site. 8 pole - don't want that but a 7 pole - yeh, that would work well - let me at 'em.
( it is not April 1st yet ,is it?)

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?
