Problems With Class 42 Warship Diesel Mainline Make

Edward seeks help from fellow OO gauge enthusiasts:

Class 42 Warship Diesel Locomotive

“Hi everyone, I’m having problems with my Class 42 Warship Diesel loco. When it goes round my inside layout with r605 curves and single curves of same radius, the bogies jump of the track. Does anyone else had this problem? I’ve checked wheels for correct flange width. I checked the track, and all looks okay. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks. Edward”

  • William Simmonssays:

    Have you checked if the bogies will clearly adjust to the curve radius as I have found some products have a restriction in the molding that need adjusting

    • Edwardsays:

      Thanks for that tip,will check asap and rectify if poss,edward

  • Robertsays:

    Also check the rail join where the loco derails.A slight misalignment of the rail head can cause problems.
