Anyone got one of the new Hornby 121's? Any comparisons performance/appearance wise with the original Lima version greatly
appreciated, ta. Badger.

Lima pancake motor replaced by a new motor bogie featuring a can motor driving two axles. No traction tyres means some examples were reluctant to pull themselves along, whilst other were smooth and perfectly adequate.
Finish much superior to the Lima examples, but otherwise unchanged. Bogies are still much too shallow, and the hideous Lima coupling is still present.
Score: 7/10, but on balance a marginal improvement on the previous Lima offerings.
John.
