Hopefully PeachBottom will see your posting and similarly get some replacement wheels from Dream Steam for her problem MSS loco kit.

FAntastic! I just haven't had time to contact them about the problems I had, but I will make sure I do!

Derail on Mamod Points

Post by jameswmorgan » Sun May 18, 2014 4:54 pm

I had a similar problem, derailing on Mamod points.
I found though that it was the meths burner that was too low and catching on a rail.
I found a bit of old copper strip and bent it, pulling the burner up to its proper height so that it clears the point.  The strip was screwed on using the fixing screw for the cross beam.
