Anybody know if some of the MTH or Lionel traction tires can be used with some of the Weaver steam locomotives? I have a Weaver L-1S 2-8-2 Mikado that needs new traction tires. Also, anybody know which nut driver tool or where I can get one to remove the nut on the connector rods.

Slightly off-topic... but I once had a couple of Weaver locos.  I struggled a lot to disassemble them for servicing, because I couldn't figure out how to remove the eccentric crank.  It's not held on by a screw, and there was no obvious way to release it.  @Bob what's your secret!?

Creep, coast, and pull.  We're not talking about cold fusion here.

Post as a separate topic. You’ll likely get your answer as more people see your question as the subject, not buried in another thread.
