I've been trying to find the rear drive wheels for a LionChief Dockside 0-6-0.  One of the wheels has come loose and it causes the drive rods to bind up and the loco to hop or stop altogether.  I tried the Lionel Support site and I'm not sure I've been able to successfully navigate it.  Any help would be appreciated.

Without your product number, we all will be guessing.

Here is my best guess:

6208613054 DRIVER WHEELSET #1 W/ GEAR / 0-6-0 /LEFT HAND LEAD
6208613064 DRIVER WHEELSET #2 BLIND / 0-6-0 / LH LEAD
6802524084 DRIVER WHEELSET #3 W/ TIRES / 0-6-0 / LIONCHIEF

Also, it may be possible to salvage your existing wheel by using LocTite 242 on the wheel where it meets with the axle.

Thanks!

That might help.  I will also try the loctite

That helped!  I was able to order the wheels from Lionel.

bmoran4 has a good solution with almost immediate results,…..beings the wheel is that loose, go ahead and remove it from the axle, make note where the wheel sits on the axle, clean the tip of the axle with alcohol. Use a Q tip and clean the bore of the wheel with alcohol, put a tiny dot of the loctite on the axle, and smear a tiny dot in the bore of the wheel,…push the wheel back on,  let sit overnight, and she’ll be locked down good,….
