The daft thing is when I emailed hornby originally after buying the blue one and it squeaking they sent a message back telling me to ring their service department due to the model being difficult to strip down, I never bothered and never stripped it down to sort out. Now two or more years later when I've had to strip another version down (eventually traced non running fault to a broken wire) I find they're an absolute doddle to strip down to lubricate the gearbox and I can't see what the fuss was all about. I fail to see why they have to use wire the thickness of spiders legs on their diesels though it's just asking for trouble in my opinion.

If anone wants a bit more of a challenge try stripping the latest Bachy 37 down to its motor to stop the driveshaft inserts in the flywheels from slipping!!
