I posted this on the S-trains list, but thought I should also post it here:
I need some help with my SHS 2-8-0. I was cleaning some rug fuzz from the eccentric crank pin – I pulled the hex bolt, cleaned everything just fine. However, upon reassembly, I broke the hex bolt by over tightening… it didn’t take much.
What should I do? Maybe best off sending in to someone who can do the work or is there some way to extract the bolt from the shaft?
I have a second 2-8-0 that needs a DC shorting plug. It also requires the infamous cracked gear replaced – I have the NWSL replacement gear.
Looking for some suggestions,
