Well the 47 would not move at all untill the wheel cogs were changed, and after close inspection the cogs were split, i will try to get the motor out at the weekend, and see if I can see where the problem is.

I did open up the spigot with a drill bit to make sure the new whells ran free, plenty of lube inserted, but i shall keep at it until the 47 is like new again.

Thanks for the input folks.

Yes, Bob at BRLines is amazing but the delay is in months to get your locos back because his service is so good!

Yep he is thorough but he will also give you DIY suggestions to solve a problem, he has phoned be back in the past and stopped me buying a full set of gears for my eBay purchased 31, he just sold be bearings!!

He really is an 'old school guy' not out to make a big profit (his prices are amazingly low). Incredibly good service.

I have a multitude of these, mostly 90's but a few 80's (at least one) as well. Have Lady Diana Spencer, complete with working lights. Needs fettling but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

It's a Poole Farish and whilst I cannot give it top marks, it gets a "Good" from me (are you guys seeing a trend here?)  :P

Now, always puzzles me why early 80's models had lights, and then they did away with them. Might fit all my 47's with LED's - the slot is there are the chassis ends.
