    Hi, Hoping someone can help[​IMG]

    I have a problem with at least two of my HO locomotives (Atlas GP7 and P2K S3).

    After rounding a curve and coming onto straight track, often, the entire frame gets skewed -- sits off center at an angle. With these loco's they are skewed enough that the couplers will not line up disallowing coupling.

    Clearly this is due to lateral play of the axles. The play seems excessive to me.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions for a solution? Any comments in general?

    Any help will be appreciated.
