I have an old GF 0-6-0 GWR pannier tank but the pickups do not work very well. The problem seems to be that the copper strips do not press hard enough against the inside of the wheels. Any suggestions of how to go about bending them bit to increase the pressure?

If you unscrew the keeper plate, it should be quite easy to ease the pick ups outwards and adjust them to suit.

IIRC you'll need to undo only two of three screws in total to do this - and then carefully fit the keep plate in place and screw it back up and that should be job done.
