My son’s model train engine has a chipped flange on a drive wheel of the front truck. It runs fine except for a ‘click’ each revolution as it follows a curve in the track. Is this something I can replace? If so, need I purchase a drive wheel, disassemble the truck and replace just the wheel or does the convenience-to-cost ratio make it better to just buy a replacement truck to swap out? Are parts readily available? I have tools! Do I need a repair shop?

M.T.H. is out of business. The link to its website is still operating and allows zip code search to its former service affiliates, some of which may participate on this forum. I'll welcome responses from those service centers that are and welcome recommendations from any readers who have experience in this type of repair. Thanks in advance to all of you!
