We have prepared a troubleshooting guide to address some of the rare, but potential issues that may be encountered when converting an O gauge Lima ringfield model over to CD/DVD drive-type motor. It is a live document, so do please check back from time to time. Last updated: 9 March 2020.
It’s been a wee bit quite on the blog for the past few months, but, much like ducks on a pond, behind the scenes lots has been happening.
One of the big projects has been the development of two new ringfield motor upgrade kits; this time we’ve been focused on Lima’s highly-collectable, yet somewhat limited range of O gauge models.
We’re delighted to announce that our brand new LO1 kit is now available. It features a chunky motor, a three part adaptor and a brand new gear.
It will fit Lima’s sole UK outline O gauge diesel locomotive – the Class 33 ‘Crompton’ – their SNCF diesel and the 0-4-0 diesel shunter (which comes in a number of guises). It’s our simplest-to-fit kit yet, with no fiddly gear trimming!
If you’d like to upgrade your own Lima Class 33, SNCF Class BB 67000 or diesel shunter, you can buy a kit via the link at the foot of this article.
We’ll be doing a short video on the kit and taking a closer look at how the adaptor fits together in due course, but for the time being we’ve produced full colour, detailed instructions, which you can download below.

We’ve also got a second O gauge kit suitable for Lima’s Fowler 4F steam locomotive. It’s almost ready to go and will be added to our web shop as soon as the instructions booklet is complete.
