I would be more worried that the thing actually runs OK.
At one stage it will probably need to have the main axle drive gear replaced. If not the whole gearbox.
Plus check out the side frames on the tender trucks. They tend to snap off by ripping out the screws holding them together.

With the exception of the 2nd versions of the Climax, Shay & Lyn and the C19, all of the Bachmann Spektrum locos have something wrong with them.

Fred, hover over the names until the country flags show below the avatar and you can see where people live.

Paul, I indicated you should post on LargeScaleCentral.com not here, many more parts in the USA..

The Bachmann estore is not an option?

In my experience, the commonly needed parts are always SOLD OUT.

yes indeed that is my problem
I had a similar problem when I repaired mine but found usually the full assemblies sell out but individual bits are available.

Headlight assembly is sold out but the individual headlight parts are available as is the firebox door if that is any help.

Might just have to sort through the 183 products or look at other Bachmann locos to see if there are parts that are common or could fit.

Ah, the Bachmann estore website is a bit user unfriendly - it looks as if you have viewed all the pages, but keep trying for more ;);)

The firebox door link above will also need the handle that locks it shut.
These small parts can be fabricated in polystyrene with a sharp hobby knife if sourcing them is difficult or not cost effective.
If you want some close up pictures with ruler, I can do. :nod:
