I have the green one 371-026 (D8134) so it's a Bachmann one.
A bit of a growler and the body resonates something awful ::)


Ran mine again today and am not sure why it's so noisy as it has nylon gears. Mayhap I'll experiment with trying to 'pack' the body :hmmm:

I'll give mine a run tomorrow Mick and report back re noise issues if I encounter any. Wondering if in your case the metal body isn't helping (then again, any vibration on the plastic bodies of the other diesels is probably worse ). The bodies are a tight fit so usually no room to shake, rattle n roll, although possibly transmit vibration (if that's the correct term).

My fleet now consists of a BR Green, one or two BR Blue (I can't recall), a DRS (made up with a Poole chassis) and a recently acquired Poole Railfreight Grey. I love them - the smaller Farish diesels have great pulling power.

I think I read somewhere that a Farish decided to stick with the metal body for these, since they needed / performed better with the added weight.
