MTH will want the model number of the engine, and picture of the pilot , with step paint scheme. What is a rectifier, I would think several different types, so you need to be specific. They do carry pilots, but may not have exact one, and therefore you might have to paint, like yellow stripes on steps. G
Dan: He sure is. I’ve been buying parts from him since 1974. He still goes to York although he has cut back on his booth size. Here’s a link to his website: Click here: George Tebolt Train Parts Inc. HTH, Bill
I have removed the existing circuitry from the locomotive. I am wiring in an AC-DC converter to take care of the power requirement for the DC motors. I would like to get a hold of a Williams by Bachmann reverse unit or perhaps a Dallee electronic E-Unit. If anyone has one they would like to part with please send me an email. One question, however, is this. Would the new E-unit/Reverse unit get wired into the circuit on the supply side of the AC-DC converter or on the "Out" DC side ?
The reverse unit replaces all the electronics, no additional AC-DC converter is needed or even wanted. The reverse unit connects directly to track power and to the drive motors. Send me an email if you want a reverse unit, I have several types in my parts box.
I met George at my first train show in 1974. The show was a TTOS Christmas show at the Glen Island Casino in New Rochelle New York. I spent everything in my pocket on p[arts. At that time the hobby was Lionel and George had the parts. He had two very young girls who may have been daughters dressed up as Christmas Elves. They were working with him. That was a very cool show.
The only bad thing about dealing with George Tebolt is you cannot talk with him on the phone and place an order. You have to communicate by email only and its a hassle when you have questions. Thats why I use Jeff Kane exclusively. S&W only answered one email in the past and that took a long time. Jeff is the best I have dealt with of many. Rob

I have an MTH 20-20222-2 U25B Diesel Engine With Proto-Sound 3.0 (Scale Wheels) and the rear truck is "missing" when I try to drive it. The front is okay. I looks like there could be either a gear slipping or a gear with broken teeth. I would like to look into it before sending off for repair but would prefer to see a diagram first. Anyone know such?
Have a MTH RailKing Steam Locomotive 2-6-0 manufactured around 1996 (Part 30-1136-0) with a worn out gear (Part EG-0000002). I've contacted MTH directly. The part is no longer available from them. Does anyone else have a source for this...
Thought I would give this a shot. My Friend Dotty is going to look for me at York but I am looking for these parts for a station Restoration I'm doing. I need one brass door and a corner light assembly. If you have one or both my E-mail is in my profile. Thank you.

Hello All: During the holidays, my Elk River Coal & Lumber 4-truck Shay decided it wanted to be repaired and broke the Drive Shaft Connector at the U-Joint behind the cylinder housing. It appears to be the result of metal fatigue (I was running on O-72 curves) so I doubt there was too much "strain" on the drive line. Has this happened to anyone or does anyone know the part number to the Drive Shaft Connector/U-Joint? After a quick search of the forums I came up empty...
So I purchased an MTH rectifier at a ridiculously low price, from an Ebay seller recently. I knew, when I made the purchase, that the loco did not run according to the seller. I'll post some photos of my progress as it occurs. The end pilot step assemblies were warped. One of them I was able to straighten, the other is broken. I sent an inquiry to MTH for the parts. How are they about sending spare parts out. Paid for of course. Not sure why two of the same picture got posted.
American Motors History Part II Hudson . The name "Hudson" came from Joseph L. Hudson, a Detroit department store entrepreneur and founder of Hudson's department store, who provided the necessary capital and gave permission for the company to be named after him. A total of eight Detroit businessmen formed the company on February 20, 1909, to produce an automobile which would sell for less than US$1,000. In 1919, Hudson introduced the Essex brand line of automobiles; the line was originally...
Have you failed to find a loco-sound board for this engine, MTH RailKing Steam Locomotive 2-6-0? I'm still interested in the gear. I'd like to give this to my nephew for Christmas. Originally Posted by LK: Im looking for the loco-sound board for this engine. if I cant find the board or I find a engine to gut, i will take a part for parts.

Any luck finding this gear in your junk box? Thanks for looking. Originally Posted by Train Doctor: Chris, I have one of these locos in my junkbox, will look tomorrow and see if I have what you need. I appreciate your searching for this item.
I am, Rege, a relatively NEW member to this blog but a 75 year OLD man who needs help trying something new. (Incidentally, if you need help installing smoke units into vintage Lionel locomotives, I've had a lot of unique experience and would be glad to help you with pics and notes.) I bought a Lionel Whistling Shed , hoping to take out the whistle and install it in a tender without a whistle . Afte r finding an air w histle breakdown on Lionel’s site, I removed the 4 diodes (pic B) that were...
Greetings! I am looking for some parts (or a whole engine for that matter if the price is right, and it doesn't have to run) from a wreck or shell that you might not need. Specifically, I'm looking for pilots, side screens, roof fans and the rear door frames for A units. Let me know what you have to sell! Thanks, Yard Bull email@example.com
Hello all, I'm trying to restore a Pre-War, O Gauge, American Flyer #3310 The problem I am having is finding parts for it. I need to get a new main drive gear and trailing pilot wheels. Anyone have a good lead for me to get...
I am trying to rebuild some 022 switches I own and I am having the hardest time finding someone who has KL-23s (insulating washer) in stock. I have looked at a vast majority train repair stores and they don't have them at all or are out of stock. I haven't contacted Jeff at ttender yet but I figure I would ask here too for any stores that I am not finding through Google searches. I looked at Smittys, hobbysurplus.com, Brasseur, Portline, Trainz and eBay. Thanks in advance, Dan
Thanks, trainmen, for your information! I will give it a try. Do you know what kind of whistle the 8633-20 circuit is used for? Also, keep in mind that I've successfully installed Lionel smoke units into 1654s, 1655s, 1668s, 1688s, 1666s, 224s, and a host of others BUT not a 1615. These are regular smoke units, not drop down the chimney Sleuth devices.
