Class 8 hitch issue - and hello all...

#1

Post by Class8Fanatic » Tue Oct 15, 2019 6:25 pm

Hi all, newbie, just starting here. :D
My rolling stock consists of one OO gauge hornby train set from years ago, (Don't know what it is), a Class 08 Deisel Shunter in BR blue and a beautiful clockwork steam train i'm slowly getting back into action :)

So really a lot to start with, but thought i'd let ya all know.

With regards to the Class 08, i have a problem with the pick up hitch. It drags along the rail, then catches and stps it running.. any ideas???

Apart from that, thanks for letting me join!

Welcome.

It may be helpful to solve your issue if you can photograph the offending Class 08 and the end where the problem occurs as well as the underside.
