however, the hardest part to get right is carefully bending the phosphor bronze pick ups to the wider gauge. I wasn't able to remove the motor block from the outside frame assembly so was forced to bend the pick ups in situ with limited room to manipulate fine nosed pliers.

I thought you might like to hear about my ongoing Bachmann 08 conversion. .... The loco is destined for my layout "St. Mary Hoo". I will post some photos of my 08 efforts shortly! Thanks for reading!

Whether this was there before the P4 conversion I can't remember, as it is so long ago that I used the model. It's not too alarming and doesn't affect its progress through curves, etc, but it is annoying. What could be causing this is a mystery; I've checked for any obstructions to the wheels, cranks, etc but nothing shows up.
