Default Loose axle?

Not sure if this is the right place for this question - apologies if not.

I have a Hornby Railroad County of Devon - lovely little runner for the money, can't really fault it. I have installed a YouChoos sound chip and she runs and sounds great. I have noticed, however, that the middle axle in the tender seems less secure than the others and on occasion the wheels struggle to turn. I am confident that I have not disturbed anything whilst fitting the chip.

Any thoughts please?

Do the wheels sit on the track properly?

So they havenít come adrift then. Did the tender contain the moulding for a ringfield motor.

I think itís loco drive if itís the one I believe he mentioned in another post. Are you thinking about the centre wheels not having an axle and just wobbling about John?

if it is tender drive some of them wobble so much but it is normal as you know Brian.
But I was trying to establish which loco it was first. The 2 latest Devons are loco drive. Also they are completely different locos. You probably know all this Brian. I wish people would quote the R numbers. with Hormby stuff because they have so many different designs over the years.

Pretty sure itís loco drive. He discussed the loco when you had lost radio contact on your journey to the new world in which you now reside.
