BLI replacement parts needed

I have a broadway limited K4 PRR 4-6-2 ? A few years back my son had a mishap and the k4 hit the floor causing extensive damage and I’d like to see if I can order the parts needs to repair. First off the part the coupler is attached to is broken off and

I think it’s part #117 or is it #107? There appears to be two different groups of parts 105 - 111 and 117 and it’s small parts. I’m having difficulty understanding which parts I need to repair this As well where to buy the parts. Sorry I'm not sure how to insert photos in the post since I don't use photo bucke anymore.

thanks

I recently needed just four handrail support posts for a BLI Mikado. I filled out an email form to them and they wrote back in a day or two asking for a little more information.

They sent them to me at no charge. For you there may be some additional postage to Canada.

#107 would be the older, Pre-War, PRR "Slatted" type pilot. Also, the generator would be behind the headlight. #117 would be called the "Modern, Cast pilot". This version the generator would be ahead, and just below the headlight on a separate bracket.

The label on your original box should tell you which model you have, the BLI model number. [I see it is 790] It will help to have that number for the parts request.

If you're missing the smokebox front you'll need #61 through #67 parts also a L&R pair of brackets with step, #41.

Good Luck, Ed
