I need a spring for a Williams by Bachmann E-7, but the spring is not listed on Bachmann's  website.


The spring is for a non-operating coupler.  The part number is 885-M013R1.


Any idea where I can get this spring, or it's equivalent?



Original Post

Try looking for a Williams parts person as they may have your part. Parts from Williams also fit Williams by Bachmann.

Or you can try a Lionel or MTH replacement coupler for your Williams engine.


I had problems with some of my Williams engines and use a nylon strap to keep the coupler closed on the engine, mainly GP-9's and early F-7's had that problem.

MTH is the same.  Try one of the sellers on the forum.  They will have it.
