Please search my channel for the latest model railway videos. I bought a second hand (pre-loved) Class 42 Warship model train called Hermes in maroon. Looked really nice. But the motor barely functioned. So I decided to take it apart. Once apart I thought perhaps people might want to see this, so I filmed myself putting it back together, a reversal of the dismantling procedure of course.
So if you do something like this, this video may give you a taster of what to expect. Only use it as a rough guide – I accept no responsibility if you muck up your own model. It is up to you.
Be very careful not to lose tiny pieces. Some people work on a white cloth so they can see things easier. Another tip is to put everything back exactly how it came out. That way brushes won’t have to be ‘run in’ to bed them again. Some screws are different lengths, so make sure you get the right ones in the right holes. Have fun!
Incidentally in the end the motor still didn’t run well. It was just too old. This model was made around 1976, so 37 years of age.
In part three I end up buying another locomotive.
