QUOTE (RFS @ 2 Jan 2009, 16:47) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I recently puchased some Pullmans and a couple had the old-style fixed tension locks intead of the NEM pocket type, which allows the fitting of Kadee or similar close couplings. If you contact Hornby customer care about this they will send you replacement bogies of the NEM type free of charge. Bit fiddly to replace (due to the wiring for the lights) but not difficult and a big improvement.

Hi Mike

I had exactly the same problem. You need completely new bogies (as the cut out needs to be semi-circular rather than vee shaped) - not just the arm.

I phoned up Hornby customer services - spoke to Colin - told him my problem and they sent me six pairs of new style bogies and arms absolutely free.

They are easy to fit as long as you take care - you will need to cut the wires coming out of the coach body and re-solder them to the wires on the new bogies but it's a doddle.
