Following, I have the same issue on the same engine.
I don't have a broken pickup on my GP but looking at mine, it appears that there is a friction retainer on the on the pickup below the soldered wire. You may be able to just push the broken pickup out after unsoldering the wire.
Ray. Thanks. I will try this. Mike
Mike, Did you make any progress on that roller pickup?
I still don't understand what he meant by "power pick-up." Looks like he needs an entire new truck?

I have a Lionel FLYER CHIEF GP7 #: 192118 with a broken pickup & seek advice on how to fix. I 've ordered replacement parts from Lionel & hope to receive shortly, but in opening the unit do not see how to fix. The first 2 photos show the broken electrical roller pickup, photo 3 shows the unbroken pickup in the foreground, broken pickup in the background. In reassembling, any tricks to align properly, as I had difficulty meshing up the gears & trucks. Mike
Any luck Mike?
