        Has anyone any experience of converting the Hornby Class 31? I know you used to be able to get conversion kits from AG, but not sure about Ultrscale.

          It looks like there is nothing listed by Ultrascale for the Class 31:

          Looking at the Alan Gibson catalogue online, the Class 31 wheels are crossed through. Out of stock, or discontinued? It’s not clear.

          Good luck on the Bay of E…

          Cheers

            Hi Bill,
            For EM gauge I seem to remember just pulling the wheels out and putting an appropriate shim/washer behind the wheel.

            That’s the easy bit, the hard bit getting the keeper plate off the bottom of the bogie tower and not damaging those sanding pipes.

            Regarding the body, the fan grille diameter is 2mm too big. Its worth using a Shawplan replacement EEDP31-00B which make an improvement with the looks.

            cheers
