Another thread about this. Somebody forgot to pay the bill??

Try going old school and giving them a call. Also try the Train Tender. They give good service.

The last word was she shut the site down permanently. And she never did, and I will not answer the phone.

 

Train Tender is a good choice...

What part numbers do you need? I have the service manual with the parts listing.

Thanks Larry. I'm putting together a Lionel 58 snow plow from a bunch of pieces. Looking for an expoded view to figure out what I have and what I need.

Sometimes people will shut down their website if they decide it's just not worth the trouble to maintain it.

Or maybe they just don't have a tech-savvy teenager handy to keep it alive!   Laugh

There's a hobby shop site I liked to look into from time to time that's not there anymore, even though I know the place is still in business.  Won't say who, that's not important.

Olsen website has been back online for past two days.  Those needing part numbers should invest in either the Greenberg or Kline Service Manual.  It saves all this grief with the Olsen Library.

Is there a similar book that has the Prewar parts lists?
