bachmann spares

Are there any shops that stock bachman spares?

I can get hold of hornby spares no probs.

However, i cant find anywhere that offers a replaement parts service, other than bachmann.

Thing is, I need a 37/4 (old style) black plastick chassis part, the bit with the tanks moulded into it and the buffer beams, as 37415 just rolled off the workbench and now does not have buffers or pipes at one end!!

I find Bachmann service at Hinckley very good and way better than Hornby whilst others such as Heljan simply do not exist, phone them up and ask you will likely be surprised. For instance I wanted a new Austerity and bought a wartime one, realised it was no easy matter to change over so asked them for a new body which they sent, meanwhile Hornby when sent 4 locos included 2 Black 5's told me they were no longer in production or available, Heljan have Gaugemaster but they are spares only not repairs. No reports on Oxford. In the case of Heljan Garrett that one is dealt by Hattons who are quite decent, maybe the other option and see if there is a second hand one with naff body available at Hattons.
