S motor bogies. Is there any Hornby motor bogies with a 46mm wheelbase? Posted at. I assume you are looking for 4-wheel bogies? These are very unlikely in the length you want, which scales out to 11' 6". Most British 8-wheel locos had 8' 6" bogies, with just a few as long as 10' 6".

Some earlier Hornby locos had dimensional inaccuracies, but if the bogies were the wrong length they tended to be too short rather than too long e. Your best bet might be to use a short 6-wheel bogie, like the one on the Lima "Western", and remove the center axle. This would give you a wheelbase of about 47mm, since the Lima bogies were a little short should have been 49mm.

The design of the bogies is on the one hand very clever; and on the other, the Achilles Heal of the set-up. This can be reduced by careful filing of the guides, and also by upgrading the wheel sets. In this respect, although Lima used a similar design, both their power bogies and the trailer bogies are very free running and trouble free.

Ironically, the Hornby bogie moulding is the better of the two, but you can't have everything. There are three 3-car Class sets on Hall Royd: the first was upgraded using the Hornby Class version of the Lima model, with the improved motor unit and wheel profiles. This was a very simple and very successful upgrade. The second set has retained its Hornby motor unit, but upgraded with Ultascale wheels, and the trailer bogies swapped out for Lima equivalents.

The third set was the later Hornby China version, and initially retained the original wheels and traction tyres. It initially worked quite well, but after not being used for a few months, it was derailing with great regularity, and the traction tyres appeared to have lost their grip.

A number of options were considered for this. An Ultrascale wheel upgrade was a distinct possibility, but reports of lengthened delivery times were a consideration. Option 2 was to try one of the Replica powered chassis.

The only downside was that the chassis came up just below the windoes, so fitting the seats could be a problem. It was whilst considering the benefits of 8-wheel drive that I remembered that many years ago, as part of a project to assemble a series of DC Kit DMUs, I had bought two sets of Black Beetle bogies. These were dug out, and looked perfect for the upgrade as they featured a low profile that would fit the existing chassis without intruding into the passenger compartment, and also featured RP wheels.

The photo below shows the completed chassis and the much improved wheel profile is immediately obvious. The original Hornby chassis had been converted to DCC but the pancake motor takes up quite a lot of room, and its a pretty tight fit inside the brake van, which can also restrict bogie rotation. I needed a new body for anther project, and it shipped with a spare underframe.

This was ideal to convert, preserving the original in case of major error.Our new search experience requires JavaScript to be enabled. Please enable JavaScript on your browserthen try again.

Yes 1.Hornby 's fourth Southern EMU in recent years was announced as part of their programme of new models just before Christmas That it was scheduled for the first quarter of took many by surprise and delighthowever this group's Modelling Secretary was aware that it was in the offing as he had been asked for, and supplied, "seed corn" details about 2Bils to Hornby several years ago.

This model falls under Hornby's new "Clever-Design" principle whereby design and production costs are strictly contained by limiting the number of features and separately applied details designing down to a price. Will this principle be regarded as a retrograde step to modellers now accustomed to highly-detailed fully featured models?

Read on and make your own judgment. To get it out of the way early, the biggest issue surrounding this new model was its availability. For reasons best known to Hornby they seriously underestimated the demand for this model and as a result the numbers produced in the first run fell far short of orders received from retailers. As a result retailers both had to ration models to those who ordered in multiple and also disappoint some customers who only ordered one.

Additionally supplies to retailers are proved to be sporadic - meaning the reviewer, despite advance-ordering his requirements the day the model was announced, had to wait some time to obtain samples to inspect. However, things from now on are predominantly positive.

Despite the constraints of the "Clever-Design" principle this is a well designed and produced model which matches dimensions, drawings and photographs extremely well in all but two respects. Designing to a price has resulted in power bogie sideframes being used on the pick-up bogie on the DTS rather than design a trailer bogie with a shoebeam. From a distance this is hardly noticeable, in fact I did not see this initially.

Secondly a design error - on the underframe of the DTC there is an arc chute a box which prevents an arc from the line fuse damaging the surrounding area to the rear of the car that should not be there, there should only be one arc chute on this car towards its cab end. However, this error is easily and quickly rectified - simply cut it off with a sharp knife. The moulding throughout is to an extremely high standard and in the opinion of the reviewer things like the grab handles being moulded on, rather than separately applied, and that most of the detail on the roofs is moulded on, matters not.

It is very well done and does not notice from a normal viewing distance. Items such as jumper cables and tank fillers are separately applied and the cab roof gutter drains are works of art,as indeed is the whole cab front. The flush glazing is effective, especially so on the corridor sides, though this model does display the white glue problem afflicting models manufactured in China regardless of brand.

The painting and graphics are to Hornby's usual very high standards, the shade of green is right to my eyes. Please be very careful when removing and replacing this model from and to its box, as the details, particularly the underframe and lower ends of the cab roof drains, are delicate and easily damaged. Quite a few of my 2Bil cars are already missing some of their lower ends of drains simply due to removing the cars from the packaging and clingy polythene protective wrapping. The model driven by a Hornby pancake motor, mounted in a metal box within the brake compartment as with Hornby's Brighton Belle model which runs fairly smoothly straight out of the box and should improve with running-in.

However this drive will never be as smooth nor responsive as a flywheel-drive can motor with gear tower arrangement as used by Bachmann on their EMU models.

The motor car, appropriately the DMBSO, weighs grams biased towards the motor bogie end, which should help with traction. The trailer car weighs grams. The two are coupled together by a non conducting drawbar as part of a close-coupling mechanism which keeps the cars close together on the straight but separates them more to go around train set diameter curves.

Coupling together is, as with other models using similar mechanisms, quite tricky and best done off the track but close by, cars on their roofs on a protective surface, and then both cars carefully rotated together and placed on to the track.

As on the real things there is a centrally mounted buffer between the two cars, fixed to the DTC. Despite the "Clever-Design" principle the cab ends have sprung buffers. The outer ends have NEM coupler pockets but couplings are not supplied. Although not looking right on this generation of unit I am planning to fit Kadees to permit easy coupling and uncoupling when splitting and joining units, though pro-tem I have fitted R narrow Tension Lock couplers on a NEM shaft.

As can be seen above the moulding of the bogies is finely done indeed, however note bottom left the use of power bogie sideframes on the pickup bogie of the DTC compare with the power bogies on the DMBSOs top and bottom right.

Note also the thicker buffer shanks on unit top right and the original thinner shanks on unit bottom right. As with Hornby's Brighton Belle the flanges on the wheels escape criticism of being mini "pizza cutters".
