Aristo 0-4-0 Loco repair
Posted by llseldon on Thursday, October 19, 2017 10:23 PM

My G guage Aristo 0-4-0 loco side rail/rod has broken, does anyone know who repairs them, sells parts, etc. I've been away from RR for awhile & lost contact with info, etc., just know Artiso has gone out of business. Any help is appreciated.

This was in the forum about 7 months ago, seemed to have good results, try Him and see, Bill........ I know I am late to the party on this one but I found a website that 3D prints replacement parts.  I purchased the Aristo Craft Pacific moving parts and they fit and work great:   http://glxscalemodels.com/cast-resin-products/g-scale/

Thanks ChoCho Willy I sent him an inquiry, great info, I hope he can product a replacement?  I'd post a photo of my problem but don't seem to understand how to insert/edit an image??  Don't understand source or image discription?

took me several tries my self, little lengthly to explain on this forum but basicly you have to put your picture from a outside sorce, not your computor, I use penterest as it's free. If you want you cancontact me directly @ billbarnwell09@gmail.com and maybe I can explain it our have you call me, Bill

I'm in contact with Gilbert LaCroix in Canada who can make the parts, did you put me in contact with him?  His email address is:  g.lacroix701@rogers.com

If you did thanks, if you didn't thanks anyway for being helpful.
