It didn’t work on the Gaiety

The first loco I tried my magic silver paint on was the Gaiety 0-6-0PT but it made no difference. Although I have now proved that it normally works well on insulated wheels. I have checked that this loco does earth on all the wheels but it still stalls when crossing two of the points on the layout. I think that it must be due to the length of the pick up when it goes over the points. However it falters but picks up again so I will live with that as it really is a very nice little loco. I now need a carriage for it to pull rather than the goods train that I use at the moment. Some thing to look for at the next train fair which happens to be next weekend – now there’s a lucky coincidence.
The clocks change at the end of the month so I should be able to spend more time on the layout which still requires a lot of work. Really very little has been done since the clocks changed back at the end of March. Although I do a bit of running there is little time to improve the layout. Lots of work still to be done.
