I have just decided it is not worth putting any money into. The plastic gears are not crack anywhere that I can see. I have three other LGB engines I can use so why put money into a less superior engine that I I really do not need. I really wanted the set for the caboose and the Texaco tanker so I am happy.
Fred I sent another Post with pictures would you please take a look at them?

They knew the gears were worn out. What I thought was plastic snow was actually the gear material.
They most certainly did - you could go round and fill their fuel tank with water :nod::nod::nod:

Not my style. Karma is what I like to see work on people. Karma does eventually come around. And then there is always the "Final Judgement" I am more afraid of that then anything LOL.

isn't sugar more efficient?
Well, it could certainly accelerate the final judgement scenario :nod::nod:

Reminds me of a snippet that someone found in a church that went something along the lines of:


This is a place for quiet prayer, so please turn off your mobile phone.
Sometimes God speaks directly to people, but he rarely rings you on your mobile phone.
If, however, you want to see God, just send him a text while you're driving.

If you can't find a replacement cover for the battery I recon you could shape a piece of wire so the ends poke through from between the hinge holes. It would do a return curve under the little latch on the other side.
A paper clip may work.
