Take it, it was not the crank pins then.. Funny that, as I have worked on at least 15 of these with this fault, and it always turned out to be the crank pins. John

Good to check the crankpins first as Footplate says, just in case. Hope all is sorted.

This may sound darft but try just loosening the bottom plate screws releaving the pressure on the axles just a little. There may be one which comes down from the top holding on the motion bracket.. Cant rememember if there is on the castle. There ws one on the Royal scot. just to realese any pressure on the axles. It does happen with old locos. John
