Thanks WTD. I'll take a look at the bar joining the tender and see if I can soften the curve using flexi track.

It's an old photo but shows the area where it derails.

Well of the 3 locos bought from Rails of Sheffield, one has been sent off for repair and Rails have re-imbursed me the cost. Another loco is being returned to them as faulty in that it derails continuously as a result of the front bogie dangling like it's about to fall off. The screw that holds it in is not actually screwing into anything and the whole assembly is being held in place by a spring.

I think now might be the time to stop using this retailer. I had issues with their N gauge models and now, 2 of the 3 locos purchased lately have caused me to (a) have one repaired and (b) one returned for a refund.

We’re they new or secondhand?
If they were new and faulty then blame the manufacturer not the retailer.

Both are used models and whilst I appreciate they are used, it seems all but one locos I've ever bought from Rails, has had faults (N gauge included here).

To be fair to Rails, they paid for the repair on one and immediately offer a refund on the other.

If they were new models, I'd still have a beef with the retailer as the purchase contract is with them, not the manufacturer.
