  • Hornby 0-4-0 Pug

    How do I remove the cab from a Hornby L & Y Pug 0-4-0T, R2453? I see a spring on each side but I am not sure what to do ....

      That's not a Pug (if I remember correctly it's a 'Smokey Joe'. A pug has a saddle tank that goes further down the side of the boiler and the smokebox door is a pair of triangular doors) but I had one ages ago.

      From what i remember the boiler/tank/cab is all one casting and it held on by a screw at the front somewhere. Possibly down the smokestack or under one of the domes? I definitely had mine apart but I think the screw might have been somewhere else.

      Undo the screw in the centre of the bottom and see what happens then.

      The two 'springs' hold the motor into the frame but are stiff metal tabs.

      It runs awfully fast with the stock gearing

        This suggests you just flip the clips up and pull/wiggle/ease the mechanism out

          I have a Hornby 0-4-0 (different model mind you) sitting on my desk right now. From the photos the chassis looks very similar. In my model the chassis has a pair of hooks that slot into the front of the plastic body casting. The rear of the body casting is then held in place by a small screw center rear above the coupler and the buffers. Once removed the bodys tilts up and forwards to disengage from the chassis hooks.

            No screws showing aside from the one to the gears. Smoke stack and domes are not removable.

            ??????? Trying to find a schematic drawing wwith no luck.

              Tom,

              If it is like mine there are two release tabs under the cab see pic

              Then you pull up on the stack the front is not attached to anything.

                  After all this I think I [:-paperbag] purchased the wrong loco.

                  I need a Hornby L&Y Pug 0-4-0T, Chassis R 2453, oo gauge, made in Great Britain, not China.



                  Now the search begins for a good used unit .. The motor does not need to be good as it will be replaced.

                        Adrian: I am building a kit from Smallbrook Studio called the "Puck". The finished body is to be mounted onto "Hornby L & Y Pug 0-4-0T chassis No. R 2453". It will be fitted with a replacement Mashima motor. I was told to get the unit built in Great Britain. Any advice is appreciated.

                        This is the schematic of the drive unit.

                          Good afternoon .... I am still looking for the mechanical and chassis of a Hornby 0-4-0T L&Y Pug or something similar in the Dapol line.

                          I am not familiar with the British locos so this topic is very foggy for me. I have found a couple of Dapol L&Y Pug's, class of 0-4-0ST on the internet. The pictures only show the loco from the outside. I do not know what the unit looks like with the plastic cover off. I need one that is similar to the Hornby 0-4-0T, R2453. One I found has the number "51241" and the other "11217" on their sides.



                          Can anyone suggest where I might find a service sheet or picture of the inside of these Dapol 0-4-0ST L&Y Pugs.

                            Hi Tom,

                            I'm not sure if I have understood you correctly but the Dapol Pug is a plastic unpowered kit (usually very cheap e.g.
                            The Hornby Pug is what you have a photo of in your posts and is a powered R-T-R model (the most obvious differences are metal wheels, separate grab irons and the motor obscuring the front of the cab windows. (http://www.dapol.co.uk/index.php?pag...mart&Itemid=59 for the Dapol Pug).

                            Your previous post has an exploded diagram of the inside of the Hornby Pug

                              Neil,

                              Appreciate your help .... as I said I am in a very "foggy" position with this.

                              Is this item a oo gauge running locomotive:

                              If you read all the description I would believe it is. Secondly would it be the unit I want?
