Hooray! I got my Class 20 going for a running day at the model train club!

I bought this locomotive from a seller on Facebook. It came with a bunch of other trains, like the Triang EMU I'll upload a photo of soon. The loco was advertised at $30 and I paid $120 for the bundle that it was included in. I also have a spare chassis and motor!

This locomotive was working when I bought it but I did give it the usual clean and oil. I had to rearrange the modified front coupling arrangement - it was sticking down too far and made contact with the rail when going over points, causing a short circuit!

It is not a very good puller but it still looks good in front of a short passenger or goods train.

Ooh that is smart!

Have you had the motor re magnetized?

No, but the motor is strong anyway. The issue with this model is lack of traction, so I guess it's off to my local lead weight store.
