Basically the same design - less sophisticated than the Hornby Dublo
tinplate mailcoach set with electric remote actuation by pushbutton.
That's Hornby Railroad for you.
However, I imagine the Jinty has the so-called new and improved 0-6-0
chassis without traction tyres and not enough play in the axles for
sharp curves and uneven track. I added weight to the front end of mine
to help it take points better. I replaced one point with a warped base
that caused it (but not other, larger locos) to derail.
The old 6-coupled tank engines had a forward weight bias, traction tyres
on the centre axle, and a sprung floating rear axle that compensated for
uneven track. I have a 2-6-4T to that design that runs fine, even
without traction tyres, hauling 3 suburban coaches.
