As @tutenkhamunsleeping had forced( :D) me to buy a Dapol Grange in their August specials I was hoping for a quiet runner. Silly me. This is after ½ an hour each way running in........

After donning protective clothing, carefully remove the tender body to release the swarm of small hornets trapped inside.

That is, well, it makes me think I got lucky with mine.  :goggleeyes:

Nice, and that sounds like a good price!

One thing worth checking with a noisy Dapol loco with a drive shaft is that the plastic collar that the drive shaft fits into on the tender end is sometimes pushed too far on and fouls the tender body creating noise, just ease it out along the motor shaft a tad and it will quieten down hopefully.

Looks like we have a rat infestation at Nodinson Hills.

Managed to find a green Buffet coach that was still in stock, now just to find myself a Green Mk1 CK to go with the rest of my Green Mk1s.

Edit to add:
Have now just noticed that the day the old version arrives at my house, the new version is now on sale...

Another addition to the fleet, Farish Class 66 101, DCC decoder fitted, very quiet runner and brilliant at low speed. Thrilled to bits with this one.

I think my layout might be 50 shades of RF grey and a random red 08!  :D

The 08 is running just fine now, I jigged the wiring and wheels a little to make sure all pickups were good. Also running in seems to have smoothed her out a touch, so she crawls at speed 2 and upwards... 1 is just too much to ask. :)
