QUOTE (Gary @ 1 Dec 2005, 09:10)currently has a 5 pole motor for improved performance and has the reliable Hornby running gear and pick ups.

Erm...,no it doesn't actually!,the Hornby model is exactly the same design as the Dapol version but with blackened wheel treads,though I was told by one of Hornby's engineers that the manufacturing tolerances were 'tightened up',-so in this respect,and the paint finish, it is improved,although no fundamental redesign of the tooling has actually taken place.

There,I've altered the wording so it reads better,-happy now Dennis?
,and Gary,-yes, I did read your initial reply,-that's why I only quoted the part concerning the mechanicals.

Blimey!-7-pole,eh!,have you re-motored it?


The standard Hornby one is fitted with their basic 3-pole disposable job (part M1799)-so a conversion would be interesting.
