    Hi Paul,

    My first conversion was the Hornby Austerity which was not overly difficult because there is no valve gear which is what scares me most.  It runs reasonably well for a while and then decides to run irrationally, last time this happened I stripped it down and started again, I am not sure that I am having issues with either wear in the solder bearings in the rods or the wheel quartering slipping out.  I will have another go at it, it won’t beat me.  I have also done a Wrenn/HD R1, but that is on the original chassis so it’s not the greatest of runners.  I am currently working on a Bachmann N, but that has just had work done on the tender including detailing preparation.  I have had more success with Romford wheels on a G6 and M7 SEF kits that are WIP.

    Are you a member of the virtual group over on fb

    it might be worth asking there if you’re interested as one of the admims I’ll look out for your application.  There are a few EMGS members over there.
