[quote]Sunday shunter that track is amazing and trains actually run on it if those are old Atlas switchers I have a box of them some missing the cabs I don't use the rest of them I go to the UK every year this year my son and family are coming out here so we are not going I could throw in a few locos in the suitcase if you want them and bring them over no charge they are free! He lives in the Kent area but we travel all over the place when we visit. Let me know and I will dig them out and see what in have otherwise they will go into the trash eventually.[/quote]
Nev, thanks for the offer! I have another Atlas WTD Switcher on the workbench at the moment & I have a couple of spare body shells, but I would be interested in the wheelsets, if you're going to bin them. They suffer from split gears on the axles - no surprise I suppose given how old these models are now, & I don't have any more axles with good gears to hold as spares. As they're also heavy little critters, if you didn't mind stripping out the wheelsets (just 6 screws hold on the baseplate) & bring just those to the UK they'd save you some kg on your luggage allowance!! I'd take the flangeless wheels too, as the axle is still part of the drivetrain.
