Rubber tires on Hornby deltic chassis.

Recommended Posts

I hope this might be of use to anyone who has the Hornby Deltic chassis

that has been cut and shut for a Silverfox 001 class or SSM B101 loco.

The main problem when the chassis is lack of traction.The motor

is a nice runner even at slow speeds,and is priced nice at 36stl from hattons.

However struggles for traction even with a fair amount of weight included.

I saw a 001

class on Gerrys Ballybeg and saw considerable improvement when

these marklin tires are installed.

The bottom of the bogie is opened by using small screw driver to push back

tabs either end of bogie,which lifts off showing wheels.Its essential that the

wheels are put back as they came off as this will cause a short if put back wrong.

I left the original tire on,and I have not been able to test my own a39 as my

layout needs some track repairs.

The only place I have seen these tires for sale is on ebay.
