On another forum someone has posted a warning concerning Hornby Toby chassis and gearbox breaking.
Just wondering if anyone here has had a similar problem with this chassis.
I have used the Bill/Ben version without any problem.
I am keeping an open mind on this. If there is a problem, then I would have expected to have come across it years ago with the locos sold to children. Worn gears on the Thomas Jinty based loco were very common, but never came across any problem on the Toby/Bill/Ben chassis.
