Some things to check:

Check for oil on the track and wheels, items either on the track or below the loco catching on the track or lifting it off the track. Check that the tender isn't lifting the drivers off the track.

Cheers,
Alan

Don't run the Farish class 60 upside down!
It mashes the gears  the same as the class 66 mentioned before.

Cheers

The confidence to have a go, the sense to stop when unsure and ask the question is all you need.
Very good advice Russ - I think I'll pin a copy of that on my workbench
 :thankyousign:
Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!

Hi just check that the coupler the drive shaft goes into is not split - have had one on my bench, worse case is worm split on tower as ever with derlin gears and components they can split - see farish gear threads..
sorry to hear about 9F not had problem with mine - pony truck apart of version one! I did refit some rods and valve gear the other week when the return crank came out of wheelset.
cheers

Can anyone recommend someone other than BR lines (who are fully loaded until August) to repair a farish Crab chassis

Paul, I'd be happy to take a look at it if you don't find anyone else.

Best,
Alan

That would be brilliant, after looking at it last night I think you might be right about heat distortion

If that's the case then hopefully the armature has survived - if not then you may need to replace it (together with the bearings).  :(

Drop me a PM and we can see where to go with it.

Cheers
