So, the new-to-me 4-4-2 #8602 has just shed a traction tyre. I’ve tried to replace it, and it is obviously split, so won’t go back on. The engine now slips like crazy.
This being the U.K., where there are no Lionel dealers and shipping on small parts from US is “silly money”, I’m open to suggestions on this. Is there any common solution involving gasket goo or adhesive? A rubber band the right size?
The alternative, given that I didn’t pay a lot for it, is to toss it in the parts tray. I could muster the whistle tender with the Scout, for one thing. The rods would dress the Scout up a little, if they fit? They look the right size, but I’m not sure about the fixing into the wheels. The front bogie would look good on the Scout, too.
