Hi guys (and girls ??)

Just thought I would ask your opinion about some notoriously bad running oldies that i wish to convert to DCC and P4...

The Lima GWR ' Flying Bannana ' and the GWR 14xx's (0-4-2's)

Do you know of any ways to make these run better. The Railcar makes that grinding sound, which i believe is the gears not meshing properly and the 14xx from memory just generally runs really badly.

I have seen that a company does the replacement motor for the railcar, but it specifically states on the instructions that you can download that it does not help the grinding noise ?

Any ideas ?

Regards,

Jonathan (Stansted, Essex)

sorry, I should probably mention that I haven't yet converted these to DCC or P4 yet, they run badly when working on normal DC.

Jonathan,
