What diameter are the axles on Peresvet locos?

Cheers

In Russia, in this case take the transmission from another manufacturer, such ROCO.

I recommend first of all replace the frame!

Otherwise you may get this:

There was a consignment of locomotives with a bad quality frame.
As I know, Peresvet replaced the damaged locomotives.
But in any case, as I know, the quality of Peresvet locomotives is not very good, especially as to old ones (TE-3 and so on).

As for Russian prototypes - there is very nice Roco's M62 locomotive!

Some Russian modellers use the Tillig NOHAB chassis for their locomotives. (for example, for ChME-3)

Looking at the area of breakage on that chassis, it's obvious they didn't do a good job in a CRITICAL area. Cast zinc WILL crack, flake, break. The difference between Peresvet and other manufacturers is they didn't make the chassis thick enough. Plain and simple. Honestly, an engineer barely out of school could have seen that coming. There are other issues with Peresvet locomotives that I don't care to go into. I'll simply say this - the company badly needs a new engineer.

Maybe, maybe...
But I can't tell you, if they have a good engineer NOW. The design of these locomotives is old enough, from the early 1990s.

they appear to use cruddy plastic as well as cruddy metal ... a number of my peresvet archbar trucks (ie the ones that *didn't* arrive broken) have warped in the year i've had them.

the cast trucks seemed to fare slightly better.

Sure. But my BTTB locomotives from 1980 still run fine with no major issues. :wtf:
