GG1 Vision Line 6-82749 for example...

I should ask Lionel again, but it's early and Saturday. Anybody had reason to talk to Lionel about these engines?

When are the GG1 Vision Line engines going to be posted on the parts site? Mine came new with hoses broken off the rear pilot and I was waiting until I could just order a replacement pilot. I talked to Lionel at the time and was told to wait a couple months. I resisted sending it in for more damage in shipping or whatever.  Later, I also broke a pantograph in a tunnel and although I fixed it with JB Weld and painted the weld black (works fine), I think I'll replace that too some day.

Original Post

It's a vision line product. Lionel' s past track record is that they do not post parts until after the warranty. They want the vision line engines to come in for repair. If you call/email Dean in customer service he may send you the parts now. He is great with helping people. My son's vision big boy had one running light out. I had to contact Mike Regan directly to get the part since Lionel wanted to do the repair. Like you I did not want to risk damage sending it in for a minor repair. I got the part, installed it and happy I did not have to ship it out.
