Why do clocks go tick tock instead of tock tick?

The only issue I've experienced is blowing of the in-line fuse. Happens when switching on from start or from going from forward to reverse. Have suggested to Mamod they either fit a slow-blow variety of fuse or fit a 5 amp fuse (like Roundhouse do with their Little John).  With a 12 volt power supply you're going to get a peak of current when the motor starts and 2.5amps is on the low side.

Also suggested they put something in the instructions along the lines of "allow the loco to completely stop before changing direction"

I haven't experienced that yet but I just run it round the track twice and it started to rain....

The only thing I don't like is that fiddly screw to remove the body. I think a thread into the body and a knurled bolt to screw into it from underneath would be less fiddly, apart from that I love it and I'm pleased to add it to my collection. I'll see what it can pull tomorrow.

Mamod have a redesigned method to remove the body, its basically a spring loaded button. It will be introduced with the next batch of bodies.

Of course, if you use rechargeable batteries you don't really have to remove the body anyway.

I think Mamod have hit a niche in the market with the Boulton diesel. It is a very good quality product that will be very difficult  to match at this price and a good start into garden railways.
