Check that all the wheelson the L1 which should pick up current are doing so - have a Schools which gave all sorts of trouble until I realise d that only a couple of wheels had the pick ups bearing correctly on them.

Most current locos are designed for a mimium radius of 438mm (UK 2nd radius) but even then issues can arise and supplied detail add ons are usually not fittable or need significanyt trimming.

Not according to Hornby, the Railroad P2 is specified as 438mm minimum radius - in fact of the Railroad range its only the tank engines and 0-4-0 diesels that are indicated as suitable for a 371mm radius curve although I would have thought most of the bogied diesels and MU would go round and the Dean Single given the age of the tooling unless the side play on teh wheels is now more limited than it use to be.
