I bought am old Hornby R352 Western Courier yesterday along with the usual Hornby DCC chip. On testing in DC the loco ran rought so I gave it a thorough cleaning and service. Testing again in DC it ran much smoother.

I then fitted the Hornby DCC chip in the usual way and removed the DC capacitor or resistor. Running in DCC with a Hornby Select controller the loco ran smooth in both directions (but quite slow).

The problem I have is that it is very slow, the top speed peaking after around only 1/3 of the speed dial rotation. I looked at the loco again but can't find anything wrong.

Does anyone have any ideas? as I have chipped 9 other old Lima / Hornby locos in the same way and have not had this problem before.
