Following on some inspiration from Tom's (Riversuir) workbench, I had a go at improving my lone Lima 201. The best donor I had to hand was a Hornby Class 59 so I had a go today and changed over the Chassis. Obviously there are differences between the chassis on the 59s and 201s but I just want to be able to run the Lima model instead of seeing it gathering dust in a siding. Anyway, I'm happy with the representation and I gave the loco a run tonight on a dc line and she is running absolutely fine, great slow and high speed running and I'm sure she'll be a decent hauler. I will post a vid in the next few days - it's getting a bit hot to be in that loft! Thanks again to Tom and I'm delighted to have a loco that now runs so well.
