Try East Kent Models. They sell replacement Bachmann chassis. The Bachmann chassis should fit as AFAIK the Mainline and Bachmann bodies are the same.
The old Mainline chassis was not that brilliant anyway.

would you like some suggestions of possible punishments for your children?

The worst one i got was when my father took the fuse out of the H&M duette because i had run down to gloucester station to see union of south africa instead of staying in and waiting for my grandmother.

Darren,

depending on where you live, you could always pick up a 'donnor' loco from a swap meet, just pop down 'Smiths and get a copy of the Railway Modeller and find the nearest one to you, you could pick up a 57xx for as little as £20, just ask to see it working if possible, this gives you a a replacement chassis cheaoer than a new one, I personelly like Mainline chassis, better creep control

also what is wrong with the chassis, you didn't say

thank you, there is alocal swap meet soon so i will give that a bash. i also preffered the mainline chassis but that has more to do with thriftiness than anything else!
ps, the chassis has snapped in 2 places.

An electrical engineer friend of mine rewired his house & instead of ring circuits each room was on a radial, so when his children played up they would be sent to their rooms & at the flick of the MCB - no power at all just the lights !
