Picked up an Austrains T Class second hand. Got some pictures, even saw a video of it running. When I got it, I could not DC test it and the lead bogie was locked tight.
Seems I was shafted as this bogie obviously was not on the one in the video.
Ok nothing I can do, however the gearbox tower is riveted and not able to take it apart. The wheels are ok and I fitted white gears in place of the burnt out ones. However the melt inside the truck is not repairable.
Of course I have done my money, instead of paying top dollar for a little used model, I have ended up with spare parts..
That is unless one of you kind folk has a spare Austrains bogie (my side frames are ok). Can anybody help, please?
put details in wanted.
