I am working on a Bachmann 4-8-4 Niagra for a neighbor. The large gear (that is powered by the brass motor pinion) has a broken tooth on the outer ring. (the small gear on the hub is fine)

Where can I find a replacement gear? Are there other Bachmann engines that have this same gear? The 0-6-0 looks pretty close to it.

I appreciate your help. I am repairing this for a elderly man who used to be a preacher. It is his favorite engine and I would love to get it going for him.

I appreciate your help.

***I'm guessing from the post that you are in USA - why not call Bachmann USA and ask their customer service - they are usually pretty good with such things and customer service staff are generally helpful, so with a little courtesy and explaination of the reason for your enquiry they may well simply send you a new gear without charge.... otherwise it'll only be very low cost anyway.

Their customer service # is 800-356-3910
