Hornby's Troubled 08s.

2209 Views 7 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  spongebob
I have recently bought two of Hornby's DCC ready 08s. must admit they are great locos to run, but after a short time they both start shrieking very loud. I have oiled all of the moving parts on both locos, but still not solved the problem.
Has anybody else had this with the 08s. and any suggestions on how to cure it?
I've had layouts and several hundred locos since 1956, with plenty of problems to solve, but this one has beat me!

Does it sound a mechanical or electronic shreik?
