Old loco chassis
Flushed with the success of having a working chassis I got out another loco that I had been working on - the Judith Edge LMS/BR Jackshaft drive 0-6-0DE. I knew I could put the existing TCS MC2 decoder in the body of the diesel. However, the chassis didn't unscrew from the body cleanly and then I realised the chassis was all pitted.
At this stage I am unsure how much it will clean up or whether the damage has gone too far. I shall take advice and decide what possible cleaning can take place.
