Farish 8126 HST Intercity 125 Problems
« on: December 07, 2018, 01:44:03 PM »
A friend has asked me to sell some old (long unused) N Gauge items for charity. Included is a Farish 8126 HST Intercity 125 set. The power car wouldn't run, so a quick strip down revealed a healthy motor, but the gear trains seized in both bogies. Oiling and gentle pushing and pulling whilst off the chassis got them freed up, but still binding too often for the motor to cope with.

Is there any hope for further TLC, or are new bogies the only way forward (or backward)?

Sounds like split gears.

Remove each wheel set from the bogie in turn and check that the gear doesn't spin on the axle. Ditto the idler gears. BR Lines or Peter's Spares may have replacements.
