I bought both of these new probably in ’04-’05 right after Terry released them. I followed the break in instructions until they were finally running smooth but shortly after that both of them stopped running. The drive gears spin but do not engage the gear on the axle. There is white powder in that area that I am guessing is from the nylon(?) gears. Has anyone had any similar issues and can offer any advice? Is there an adjustment to be made or are replacement gears available?
I know Terry had to step away from making these to concentrate on his primary business. I have tried contacting him anyway but have not had any luck reaching him. The contact information I have is probably out of date.
These have been “shelf queens” for many years and I am trying to get them back on the layout if possible. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
