mmmmm....
Looks like the chappie who made that comment is quite a forum dealer. He had a NIB one for sale/sold one recently himself. I wonder if it sold for 160...

I love the look of the snub nosed railbuses at the top of this thread. Smile

The motors aren't suitable for running on "zero" setting of Massoth/LGB DCC current and get very hot indeed.

Alec has a pair of that model which ran on my line for around half an hour
Obviously they are fine on analogue power.

Nice models too Smile

Paul

Does that apply to all Piko loco's ?

I've been tempted by one or two on German Ebay but would initially want to run them under 18volt MTS on "0" Analog setting!

I can't be sure Brian, I haven't seen the motor inside any other Piko G Scale loco.

Do they have specifications or exploded diagrams on their website showing details ?

The guy that runs Grootspoor.com (Michael) will probably know, he seems to stock a lot of Piko. Smile

I don't think I'm in Michael's best books, as I kept asking him for prices on Corpet's which I didn't purchase, thank goodness as I got a much better deal via GMad Razz
