I selected UK and sterling but it was still showing dollars on some prices.  The prices don't seem very competitive either and the trustpilot reviews have put me off.

I have a couple of former trackmaster N2's in storage awaiting their turn in restoration.

The detailing and running from the throwaway motors might be good but they are super fragile and still not 100% accurate due to the OO incorrect track gauge.

Set the decoder up for dc running and try the loco on DC. If it goes then it's a decoder issue, if it doesn't then it's a loco issue.

Bit of a weird website, some prices  for models in sterling others priced  in dollars. Not keen on Trustpilot reviews either.

Set the decoder up or remove the decoder and try the loco on old fashioned DC. These locos have a cheapo throwaway motor, once the brushes wear out it's new motor time.

I have a scrap maroon WAB kicking about, it's the same colour as the Tri-ang "The Princess Royal".

I agree with WTD.  You don't need NEM sockets to fit plastic couplings Colin. It's a simple modification, it's not rocket science to make a plastic coupling hook to replace the metal hook, you aren't replacing the whole coupling with this method.

Glad you all like the pics.  It's good to be rid of the snow.

It's my part of the world, I could probably help.
