Daft kit build mistake number 42

Got 0-6-0 chassis working nicely except after going straight following wide
curve. Give it lots of power and would often slow down but still manage to
get passed straight and into next curve. Appeared to just lose power,
slightest touch and away it went. runs without whirr so no binding. looked
and looked and looked.....
Finally tried connecting rail to motor with seperate wire in case all
pickups not in contact. Sometimes appeared to leap away again, but not
always. Of course only did this on side with pickups cos cant be problem on
other side - of course not. Well checked other side. oh dear, it always
leapt away. Got meter out to check wheels. Yes one is an insulated wheel.
Had replaced it a while back cos ..(thats a different story).
cheers,
Simon
