This loco on a circular track one of the wheels usually jumps the track, it can be any of the wheels, I also have a set of points that it derails every time it passes over, I have three other Bachmann and three Hornby locos, that pass over these points with no problems, thinking of sending it to Bachmann to see if it can be fixed,
I am a club member and a couple of experienced members have looked at the points and said they are okay.
Any ideas what could be causing this loco being a serial derailer?

What size curves are you using? While it may handle it at low speed, the wheelbase on a Class 66 loco is not going to be happy on R1 curves or turnouts.

If at first you don't succeed, throw it in the spare parts box.

Yeah have just tried it on the second radius with no problems, I usually run my passengers on the second radius and my goods on the other, so I was perceiving with it, thought it would be okay, but it looks like it will have to be the second radius  from now on.
