Sorry for the standard gauge question, but I havent yet found a standard gauge forum! I run 'O' gauge and standard, and am thinking many others may too, so the odds are good here for an answer to my question. 🤞
I think my Lionel 380 E-unit is worn out because it doesn't want to reverse direction smoothly, and sometimes the entire locomotive goes 'dead' even the lights. I have read that the unit is a 'pendulum', but I can't find the number for an original replacement. I'm also wondering if there is a newer, more functional e-unit I could replace it with that wouldn't be as tempermental as the pendulum type. Any thoughts or recommendations would be very much appreciated.
