I have an LGB 3019 Postal Wagon.
The springs in the power pick ups on the metal wheels no longer hold the brushes against the wheels.
Can anyone please tell me a part number and where I can get replacements?

Many thanks.

Mike Bett.

Are you sure it's the springs and not just worn out brushes? Have you tried cleaning the brass brush housings? It could be corrosion is interfering with power pick up. All else failing, you can replace the existing pickups by soldering in the newer 14mm single unit brushes.

Thanks Phil,
I have ordered the springs etc.
it will be easier than soldering the newer one in.
