SPARES FOR THE 1935 SERIES MOTORS AND MECHANISM

This series of mechanism had zinc die cast frames, frame spacers and front bearing block. Many of these have suffered from swelling, cracking and ultimate disintegration. Pre war motors had a horseshoe magnet which over time may need remagnetising. Post war motors had a bar magnet. The back bearing plate of bar magnet motors was another die-casting which also suffered similarly to other die cast parts. The following replacements are available:

Frames, stainless steel with brass bushed driving wheel holes 4 coupled...................£22.00 per pair

Frames, stainless steel with brass bushed driving wheel holes 6 coupled...................£30.00 per pair

Current collector for third rail operation sprung brass strip with brass buttons Ready to fit…£10.00 each

OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE OF LMC ELECTRIC MOTORS

In many cases the problem with LMC motors proves to be over oiling. It is not necessary to oil motor commutators, the copper carbon brushes are self lubricating. If oil reaches the commutator from gears and bearings, it will form a paste with the graphite from the brushes and this will enter the commutator slots and cause a short circuit, and sluggish running. This oily paste seeps into the brush housing and prevents the brushes from easy movement under pressure from the plunger spring, giving problems with smooth operation, starting, and slow running. Avoid excessive oiling of gears and bearings. Keep the commutator clean by wiping with a soft rag, but not emery or glass paper. The brush housing can be cleaned through using cotton wool “buds” or similar, and the brushes wiped clean on absorbent paper before refitting. If brushes do not slide freely in the carriers they may require slight reduction of thickness and width achieved by sliding one wide and one narrow face across fine emery paper. After this operation the affected corners will need to be rechamfered. Excessive oiling may also loosen the commutator on the motor shaft. Ensure that the commutator slots are exactly aligned with the topmost central point of the armature, except in the case of motor bogies where the slots must line up with the lowest central point of the armature windings. Loose commutators may be re-set using superglue or similar.

 

REPAIR AND RECONDITIONING OF MODELS

All LMC "mass production" locomotives were factory painted by hand, and hand/ transfer lined, and can thus be restored to original appearance using the same techniques. Since these models are made from tinplate it is essential that early and effective action is taken to remove rust and prevent further rusting.

 

REPAIR AND RECONDITIONING OF MOTORS

Major rebuilding, requiring replacement in the series 2 and 2/1 motors of the Newalloy front bearing block and in the case of series 2/1 motors also of the rear bearing plate, may not be economically attractive. In such cases replacement of the LMC unit with a more modern motor should be considered.

COACH BOGIES

Bogie wheels

Tinplate pressings required for our replica LMC bogies originally supplied for the litho coach and van range. These are supplied ready to run fitted with LMC replica blacked hard white metal wheels press fitted onto silver steel axles. (Wheels can be set to your back to back requirements). Axleboxes are press fitted white metal. Price £20.00 per bogie

Our replica of the 1935 series cast bogies continues to be available.

Bogie wheels

The sides are cast in pewter which is stronger for this application than white metal. As for the tinplate bogies the bogies are fitted with LMC replica blacked hard white metal wheels press fitted onto silver steel axles. (The  standard back to back for these bogies is 28mm, but wheels can be set to your back to back requirements).The bogies are supplied ready to run at £25.00 per bogie.

Bogie wheels

The bogies are also supplied in kit form minus wheels, requiring painting and assembly with 4 x 9BA screws (supplied). Price per kit is £12.00.

These 8ft wheelbase cast bogies were originally introduced to run under the LMC range of Bakelite coaches, but were also used on the last supplied LMS litho coaches, the post 1946 ‘Rigid-litho’  LMS coach, the Pullman Coaches and ‘Nettle’ the Sentinel-Cammel rail car.

 

TINPLATE bogies for the litho coach range and other pre-bakelite bogie vehicles, ready to run £20.00 each

Kit of parts for assembly, bolster, frame and 4 axleguards (minus wheels and axles).................£10.00 each

 

8 ft wheelbase 1935 series CO/17 (as fitted to the bakelite coach range) kit...…......£12.00 each

As above, assembled painted and fitted with standard scale wheels ready to run...£25.00

These bogies are cast in PEWTER which is stronger and more durable than white metal and is better suited for applications which involve significant load bearing and wear of moving parts. As a kit the bogies are supplied without wheels, unpainted but otherwise ready to assemble. The frame end blocks are tapped 9BA and four 9BA screws are supplied in the kit, When assembled the stretchers should not be screwed up tightly to the sideframes so that a small amount of movement can allow for the compensating action when running. Satin finish black paint most closely reproduces the original appearance of these units.

The bogies were introduced for the range of bakelite coaches but were also used on the L.M.S. litho coaches, the "Rigid-litho" L.M.S. coach, the Pullman coaches and "Nettle" the Sentinel Cammell rail car.

 Original, reconditioned units of both types of bogie with original or new wheels may be offered at the above prices as available.

Coach

NEW Southern Railway Coach lithographs. The original LMC lithograph masters were lost in the fire of 1932 and never reproduced. Now the Leeds Stedman Trust in collaboration with Bug Print, Tasmania, is pleased to offer litho sets for the 12 inch standard LMC coaches. The individual coach types have been re-mastered to be very close in appearence to the LMC originals, - the photo shows the mainline (corridor) coach and brake coach. Sets are also available for the suburban coacch and brake end. Priced at £10.00 per coach set, post extra, these new lithos are sure to please SR enthusiasts, or anyone wishing to renovate their 'tattered' old stock.

There a very few of the original LMC lithos which are not held as papers in the Trust archive. One of these is the NE bogie box van. Introduced by Rex Stedman in 1929, it was missing from catalogues from 1946 onwards. Several attempts have been made to reproduce the original papers but none until now has succeeded in creating the ‘right look’. Most recently and under the critical eye of David Cooke, Wessex Transfers in Tasmania have finally come up with a very fine reproduction indeed.

 

 

 

Shown here on an original body the effect is a most acceptable representation of the original. A small number of sheets of the lithos has been run off and these are available from the Trust at £12.50 per sheet including post in a tube (small parcel rate).

Rob Horton of Wessex Transfers  has  once again excelled in producing re-mastered lithographs of the LMC GWR panelled coaches for the 'Launceston Model Company’ - conveniently LMC = this Tasmanian producer of high quality heritage graphics spent many months under the constant scrutiny of local LMC enthusiast David Cooke before the artwork was ready to print.

Four litho sets are now available, the suburban coach, the suburban brake coach, the corridor coach and the corridor brake coach, replicating the LMC originals which were first released in 1927. In 1935 LMC put out a new set of lithographs for the GWR coaches, The cause of the change was the 1932 fire which either burned or water damaged much of the stock including the panelled coach lithos.  The new patterns featured the ‘button’  GWR crest rather than the coats of arms of London and Bristol and the full coat of arms of the company.  These have been faithfully reproduced on the re-mastered papers.
Shown here is the suburban brake set. Papers are £10.00 per coach set, with £3.35 for first class post in a tube.  Up to four papers can be sent for the single postage charge.

 

REPLICA LMC/STEDMAN wooden coach and van bodies are now available from Bruce Palmer, (0208 686 3179), bpalmer498@btinternet.com, and John Davies, (01932 245372). These may be used in conjuction with spares available from us, (lithos, roofs, bogies, buffers etc.) to create entirely new models closely resembling the originals. In addition Palmer and Davies offer a variety of lithos for other stock including London Transport vehicles. Their product range is continually expanding.The latest addition is an exact replica of the GWR Toad litho brake van
