Guys, Thanks for all the help. I think we are getting to the bottom of this. Clem, Yes, this a dummy (Non Powered, or NP) unit. You are quite correct in that the mentioned wheel set is not seated correctly. That is part of the problem. It will not seat correctly in any of the 6 slots available. The flat tipped pins make no difference in the way the wheel set goes in. I left them installed. Clem and WillyGee, I did try your suggestion to install the truck plates without the wheel sets.

It's the Hornby #20 series locomotive and rolling stock which was a bit smaller than the other Hornby sets. They featured a unique simple coupling system and were the Hornby equivalent of Lionel's Winner sets from the 1930s. Lew

Re: Changing out wheel sets?

lehighline ·
Actually, I don't want to change out the sets, unless I have to. The problem is an NS Non-power unit that does not track correctly through a curve. I have several other NP units of the same type that go through fine, and up until this unit, have not had issues with the track. So things point to the engine. I checked the lead truck on a flat piece of track (Checked with a straight edge.) The truck can have only 3 of the 4 flanged wheels touching at once. So I think I've found the problem, so...

The wheel sets can... not be seated fully, causing an issue like what I believe to be that you're describing. I have not seen a warped truck casting yet after working on a lot of MTH engines. When you remove the bottom cover on the 3/2 trucks, you can see the offending one usually. I also place a straight edge against the wheels to make sure they're all in line. Make sure the "bushings" are in the correct clock position to make contact with the small tab cast in the truck, underneath them.

Re: Changing out wheel sets?

Engineer-Joe ·
I believe those "pins" are for carrying the current from the wheel sets to the wiring. If that is preventing the wheels from sitting down fully leave them out. The holes are where the wiring would be for powered 3/2 models. The cover should not be pushing down so hard as to prevent the wheels from spinning. If they are, the wheel sets are not fully seated. I have not seen or owned any wheel sets that did not work. I have had more than enough, that were finicky about installing. Maybe the...

At his point can you hold each axle in your hands and spin the bushings freely?

Re: Changing out wheel sets?

Joe: I tried without the pins: no difference. I agree: Pressure from tightening the cover plate should not affect the function. Since it does, the bushing is not fully seated. The first picture above shows this on the geared side. Also, with the suspect wheel set in slot 3, the cover plate does not fully mate with the truck casting. I can see an angled gap between the plate and the casting. Willygee: All 6 of the wheel sets spin freely if the plate is not screwed down tightly. Chris LVHR

Does the cover snug down firmly and look ok without any wheel sets installed ? The small black screws should bottom out and tighten with a "feel" and not feel forced.

Good morning Chris....Is this a dummy unit? I notice in your first photo the lead axle is not seated all the way down on the right side. also try mounting the axles without those flat tipped pins..And like mentioned above try putting the truck block and plate (cover) together without the wheels installed, should fit perfect. I have about a dozen of these six axle truck locomotives that I changed wheels on and all are no problems. Clem

I spent the afternoon trying to figure out what is going on with this engine. I started by getting out another NP unit and placing it on my piece of straight track. Sure enough, no wobble and all 6 axles turn freely. So back to my problem child. To keep track of things, I numbered the axle positions 1-6, front to back. This means slots 2 and 5 have the blind wheel sets. First thing I found out is I have 2 problems in addition to the wobble: Axles 1 and 6 do not spin freely. Front truck...

Passengers? Complaining? My set didn't come with any passengers, so I don't think we'll be hearing anybody complaining up there in those domes. Subtle floor lighting might have been a real cool effect. Perhaps for V2.0 David

Almost bought the Wabash set at the Allentown show today. Pete Costa had a 6-car set on display in boxes. Catl'g pics do NOT do these cars justice! Very smart-looking appearance for this set. Would have been quite the impulse buy, but then I'd need to find some motive power for it too. One thing always leads to another. So i excercised a little self control. Perhaps another day. David

Personally, I would much prefer lighted domes primarily to spark memories of those magical and beautiful silver Lionel (and Flyer) passenger cars when we were kids. Great memories too! Would seem there have been several excellent suggestions for modifications when you are adding the much-needed passengers. Perhaps drilling the holes and maybe covering them with translucent tape would be the easiest and best? That would add the light from the floor and appear the most prototypical...
