    Track cleaning. Wagon

    Hi all. Could anyone recommend what would the best cleaning wagon coach to buy for 00 gauge 1.76 scale peco tracks cheers
  9. Thanks lads for the reply. Jhb171, I don’t have any gradients as such and Leslie your right about the Murphy models I stuck a Murphy 181 on the freight rake and it pulled it no problem. I had the Hornby class 40. Pulling the rake but it was just a piece of junk wouldn’t pull the skin off a banana. I will have to buy a Murphy model for pulling power and reliablety. Cheers
  10. Hi all. Could I have your opinions on what would the best diesel locomotives for pulling freight. We say a rake of 15 to 20 wagons. 00 gauge. 1.76 scale . Diesel loco. I heard the Bachmann class 38. Have good pulling power? Or would I be better off sticking to the Murphy models. Opinions please. Cheers

    Thanks lads getting some great advice here. And Irishthump, they derailed on curves, and even on the straight. With a small rake of 15 wagons it could be a small problem with one wagon. It trying to pinpoint it that’s were the fun starts.
