Thanks, pretty much what I am doing. I have all 16 running behind a pair of 92's, both 92's have additional weight added, the other thing I found, was packs 1 & 2 ran well almost out of the box, where packs 3 & 4 are taking a lot of work to get running well.
Think I will wait for the new parts now before continuing. I will keep them regardless as they are one of the main pieces of rolling stock for a new layout.

Hi Gang,

I may be forced to get the Mk5s out again on the test track to see if the stiffer ones are from specific sets as previously noted by some. It will be an excuse to admire them and have a further fiddle with the wheelsets and pickups!!

A selection of my pictures, real & model ARE NOW to be found at...

I wouldn't bother. All 4 of my sets have stiff wheelsets, I can't see any correlation between set numbers or coach types and stiffness, other than they're all stiff  ;)

I do hope that the TPE sets come "pre-fixed" though.

Is there any word on the TPE sets, anyone heard a whisper, there is nothing on the projects page.
I guess we may get a whisper or 2 from Warley.

I see we now have shipping to customers on the TPE sets as of today UK time.
Anyone heard anything on the fixes to the wheel sets. Strangely quiet from the Revolution team on an issue.

thanks, just wondering about the Caledonian sets.

jpendle

I exchanged emails about the Caledonian ones about 6 months ago, but haven't heard anything since then.
I think I'll have to send another email to try to find out what the resolution is.

Just received my invoice for these.

Hello all,

The first few hundred Mk5 TPE sets have been shipped, and should be arriving with those who paid in full today or tomorrow, depending on the Royal Mail.

As ever, if you have any problems at all please email our customer support manager first - he has a step-by-step diagnostic process to aid in trouble shooting and of course we would much prefer you give us the opportunity to solve any issues before complaining online.

We haven't forgotten those having trouble with sleepers, but we have been waiting to study the performance of the TPE sets' 'improved' wheels.  If these are better (and the samples were, but of course that is just a couple of sets) then we will use this learning to help anyone still having problems with their sleepers.

If you have the sleepers and we haven't come back to you within a week or so please contact us again so we can help.

cheers

Ben A.

Don't forget, to be truly authentic, once you've got them running, you'll need to park them up in a siding somewhere until another operator picks them up  :doh:  :(  :D

Can't wait to get my hands on the two sets that I've ordered.

Which reminds me that I think I'll need to order decoders for the driving trailers

Quote from: GroupC on February 12, 2019, 04:49:49 PMI'm amused by the thought that these model TPE Mk 5 sets could arrive before the forever delayed real things get started. An interesting reverse to the Dapol Pacer which is arriving just as the actual things are about to disappear.

Sorry to quote such an old post but it made me chuckle, things didn't go quite as planned on the real railway  :D

Plus suitable speakers and find a place to install them.   :)

Just got the despatch note for mine, had forgotten about the decoder, will have to get one.
Wonder how long Aussie Post will hang on to them before they reach me.
