Mechanism recommendations please

  Gremlin Assistant Commissioner

I have a Lloyds 620/720 with a K&M mechanism.  It is very noisy so I am looking to replace it with something else that I can use on DCC.

Would appreciate some suggestions...

Hi Gremlin,

AR Kits is now distributing North Yard mechanisms-

Al is listing the 620-720 replacement mech, see end of list.

I really like North Yard mechs, they are one of the best around, that's my opinion. I will be using a couple in my 900 class DEB set.

Hope that helps,

I bought a Bowser set of bogies for my 620/720 from lloyds (I think they used them in their DEB set & offered them as replacements for the 620/720s), seem to work well.

Cheers Alex.

From Lloyds in the ACT, not sure where you could get them from now. I think he's retired from the hobby scene but maybe he is still contactable?  OR try Al Cutmore from AR Kits as I think he's taken over that range of kits.
