Midland Railway 47624 Motion Repair

Updated: Aug 1, 2023

This MR 3F has suffered a major drive motion failure, with coupling rods damaged beyond repair.

This will be fitted with Premier Components new coupling rods, a new motor and gearbox and new pick ups.

Chassis stripped down, next check will be wheel alignment.

Lots of new bits to be added, as you can see the Premier Components machined coupling rods beautifully made.

This loco has been fully repaired with with new plunger pickups, some 10BA crank screws, top hat bushes tapped to 10 BA fitted so they look better than the hex nut finish. Premier components machined coupling rods needed a slight fettle but once fitted along with the 40:1 gearbox and motor all runs nicely.
