If you see a post by my real name....it's me.
I'm posting it again as I was perplexed by the 'new' forum changes that required adding my user name. Upon putting 'Knuckes' it said it was already taken, so, like a mongoose I added my real name.
It was only after I realised I was replying in the guest book and was not logged in!
Feel free to delete that entry.
I have a set of these I brought about 5 or whatever years ago as a future set to use once a layout suitable is done.
Part of my mind has always wondered if these will be for the P4 or 00 layout and still undecided.
I can confirm however that there is no way they can be sprung out, the wheels are well and truly trapped and any bodging to cut them out will not guarantee an easy or neat replacement. It is fear of the unknown deep within these bogie caverns that has put me off all these years trying,especially as the 6 coaches at the time cost me £36 a pop, likely more now.
I can get a pic later if it will help.
