Need MPC Blue Comet Engine Front Body Screw
Posted by DonV on Tuesday, November 8, 2022 10:21 AM

I'm looking for the part number for the Front Body Screw on the under side of my MPC era NJ Central Blue Comet engine. I need the part number to purchase one and also find a place where to buy it. Thanks in advance for the help.

Looking at the Greenberg's Lionel Modern Era book, it looks like the screw could be Part # 8600-47 (steamchest mounting screw).  I would call The Train Tender at 585 229-2050 and ask if that's it. They have this screw listed on their web site. They list it as 6-32x3/8  slotted fillister hd. They may have the book I mentioned and can go over it with you to see if that's what you need.
