We have put together a Guide to building the EasiChas which is based on the instructions included with the kit. We recommend that you read this before starting on construction. There are also brief notes on the prototype variations and the different Hornby models. Numbered parts list

The photographs for each step can be zoomed-in to show the fine detail of the assembly and the components. (After looking at a photograph in close-up, use the back button on your web browser to return to the place on the page that you were reading).

The Guide is arranged in sections covering the five main stages of the work:

Preparing the Hornby model

Basic conversion of the locomotive

Replacing the coupling rods and brakes

Converting the tender

Finishing touches
