The Suppressor capacitors are usually around 470pf (picofarads). Triang used to use ceramic ones as they were robust, small and reasonably cheap. But any capacitor of that size and around 50 volts working voltage will do. Maplins and the like should be able to supply them.

Do do a search on this site for 'old motors' or the like; some very useful information has been published here regarding getting old Triang motors running smoothly.

Regards,
John Webb

QUOTE (poliss @ 14 Jun 2008, 22:50) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Lots of Tri-ang service sheets at this link. http://www.modeltrains.net.au/hornby/service_sheet_menu.asp

Great website for the database and pointers to correct model numbers etc to track down the model.

And you might try downloading direct from Hornby for the actual service sheets (very good but incomplete list of service sheets on the hornby site)

Any chance you (y'all) might know where to get Hornby Dublo service sheets as I need them to fix a couple of old locos. Nearly done but still some fine fiddling to go and service sheets help.

(and any others , I need a TRIX 0-6-2 and mainline 4-6-0 chassis service sheets as well)

I am searching the web but nothing yet

I may start a thread on this one (moderators ??)

Poliss,

Many thanks and I have come across this website but missed the service sheet area (D'oh)

I have also been in touch with them and got some spares on the way.

I will be making some 'arty' type locos (variation on the 'Thomas' theme) using Hornby Dublo metal chassis(es) and will post the result at some stage. It's for the kids of course.

In answer to your post below, I have a patriot class Bachmann loco body and a mainline 4-6-0 chassis (perfect fit though not purist stuff) and have myself a nice loco for my eventual but currently virtual layout. For you aussies, it is a loco body named 'Western Australia). There's a picture at this post with the link below.

I tried setting up a blog (but I broke it as in 'I doesn't work - Help administrators, Please take note and delete my current blog)

I have the service sheet for the bachmann chassis but not the mainline (and already ruined one motor by loosing one of the springs and brushes)

Many thanks for your post

Onwards

I haven't been able to find any service sheets for Trix locomotives. :-( Maybe these people could help. http://www.ttrca.co.uk/

Poliss,

Many thanks again.

Will check these out.

and post the url when the patriot does come out (Hope someone from mainline sees this)

Thanks Poliss. I will check this out

Train Toy Rectangle Engineering Auto part

I am still looking for a suitable chassis and motor for this old Trix and have begum work on the Hornby Dublos. I will probably add a post to the 'On my workbench' to follow on from

http://www.modelrailforum.com/forums/index...?showtopic=5520

The hornby dublo is an interesting type of 'open' motor construction. Meaty stuff !!!! The complete one was got from 'Mainly trains' and the bits and pieces have arrived to fix up the other chassis (the other one will be scrapped after being taken apart)
