Traction tires for Lionel AF Northern

Hi, I just bought a Lionel American Flyer 4-8-4 northern that has no traction tires.  Does anyone know who carries them?  I've tried Lionel but the part number (40-8047-206) doesn't get a hit.
Thanks in advance,
Ron Ferrel

Ben, I went back to the Lionel site and did find a parts breakdown for the engine which shows the traction tires are unavailable.  I had to get creative with the numbers to even find it by just typing in 8047.  I sent them an email and asked them where I can obtain them.  Thanks for your help.

Thanks very much for everyone's input.  I was able to locate some tires and bought an extra set as well.  I did get a response from Lionel telling me only that they were unavailable from them.  I was able to test the loco successfully without the tires on a 40" circle and have since installed a set.  Hope to test tonight on our 105' oval on the club layout.

I have to say that every time I've had a question for this forum, I've received excellent help, thanks again!
