This is the second in our range of kits for simple and rapid  conversion of RTR locomotives to a sprung chassis in EM or P4. As with our A1 EasiChas kit, no soldering is required to produce a fully sprung chassis - just use our fold-up EasiChas over the existing Hornby chassis block . Note this kit is not suitable for tender drive versions and other earlier Hornby models.

We have taken lots of photographs during the building of our test model - click here to view these.

There are various levels of conversion with the builder choosing which, of any, additional detail is required beyond the basic conversion.


The basic conversion makes use of:

fold-up mainframes and keep plate with sprung bearings

fold-up replacement bogie (3 types)

fold-up replacement tender frame with sprung bearings.
