I just opened my new-to-me JLC scale GG1 and it will not run more than half an inch or so. A quick examination shows the truck side frames to be distorted with zinc rot. Reading the old posts and looking on the Lionel website brings no joy.
Are these side frames still not available? Part number is 6108371035. Catalog number of the loco is 6-18372.
Has any one come up with a solution or a work around?
Sure is a nice looking loco and sure is a bummer that it cannot be operated. Hard to believe that a high end piece like this can only be used as a door stop.
