    The balance weights on the fore and aft drivers are approximately the same size and since the rear axle only deals with the coupling rod, it is probably reasonable to conclude that the forward driver weight only equates to the coupling rod it supports.

    Railer, My guess is they scrapped all the useful stuff(locos, mk3s, bogie flats) to make Irish operations unattractive to private enterprise.

    dcc voltage too high for 12v motor?

    Hi Controller, No, there shouldn't be any issue with that. People have been hard wiring older locos for years without issue. The only thing to watch out for is to make sure the old loco is running freely and smoothly on DC before fitting the decoder. If the old loco is running badly then there is a chance it could fry the decoder. DCC is AC so the effective voltage is less than 14V. Additionally, the output that the motor receives is almost certain to be 12V or less
  12. Hi Kevin, I have built a number of brass steam loco kits including some from SSM/TMD. Like you, I initially liked the idea of a donor chassis to 'plonk' the body onto. It seems logical. If you go down the donor road, I suggest a tender drive Hornby School class 4-4-0 as this has almost identical wheel size and spacing. Other 4-4-0s such as LMS 2Ps and Compounds are too short. As others have already explained, the donor idea has possibly more challenges than building the kit chassis. The main issue being that the finished loco body will require serious surgery to accept the new chassis, especially if it's a loco-drive unit. The other issue is that, in my opinion, the body and tender of the loco kit probably represent 85% of the effort and skill while the chassis is around 15%. The way I see it, you have two options: 1. Build the kit as designed. I suggest you get wheels and crank pins from Markits, as suggested above, rather than the Gibson ones supplied by SSM as they are WAY easier to fit. Or 2. Buy a full Hornby Schools class(tender or loco drive) and use the the parts from the SSM kit to clad and convert it into 85 Merlin. I want to try doing this with SSM GNR S class parts on a Southern T9 4-4-0 at some stage.
