Rapido OO Hunslet Part 2 Chassis Test

Rapido OO Gauge Hunslet

In my first quick look at the Rapido Trains Uk 16inch Hunslet, I assumed the chassis was fully geared. Having had some issues with fully geared chassis’ before I was wondering how this one would perform.

However a look at the manual indicated that my thoughts were incorrect and the chassis is a conventional gear drive onto the rear axle. In the video you can see how well this straightforward split chassis performed, particularly when compared to the DJM J94.

Despite being incorrect on my initial assumption that this would be a fully geared chassis, it was a pleasant surprise to find it was conventional, and just how well it runs. I’ll follow this up with a blog review post in the next few days.
