Hi Everyone,

I need a power truck side frame for a FA-1 Williams Alco.  I called Bachman and they do not have the part.  Do we know anyone on the forum that deals with Williams parts.  I knew a guy outside of Harrisburg named Phillips, but I think he had passed away.

The part needed is a truck side frame.

Thanks,

 

Jim

Depending on what is broke with the original side frame, consider jb weld epoxy to glue it back together.

I have bought many Williams and Williams by Bachmann Trains.  I have gotten parts to some of my engines from a gentlemen in Beavercreek, Ohio.  His store name is:  Timko Repair Depot, 349 Grange Hall Road, Beavercreek, Ohio 45430    phone 1-937-429-1461   Good luck -- railbear601

I looked at my Williams part box and found 2 black alco side frames.  I think I purchased them for my Louisville and Nashville Alco FA Diesels.  They are black and have one screw hole in the top of the casting.
Let me know if you wish to puchase either one.....sincerely yours.....railbear601

To replace a fractured/missing side frame on a Williams FM Trainmaster the post war Lionel FM  Trainmaster side frame will work, for the gear side on the Williams truck the Lionel side frame had to be notched to clear the gear. Jeff Kane at the Train Tender has the Lionel side frames, Part Numbers 2321-144 LH cast truck side frame FM(gear side), 2321-143 RH cast side frame RM, Jeff's prices are very reasonable, contact him at 585-229-2050, both the Williams and Lionel FM side frames are similar in length, mounting and appearance.
