LGB repairs
Posted by edradz on Monday, January 21, 2019 6:57 AM

I have a LGB Grizzly Flats 0-4-2 that has a grinding gear. Where can I go to get it fixed? I am in North Carolina. I have already talked with James out at the Little Choo Choo shop. They do not work on LGB.

Ed, I have had good luck talking with the folks at TrainLi. You may be able to order a part after talking to them rather than worrying about shipping your whole loco. Their website has some troubleshooting tips, too, that have saved me a good bit of money putting a 30+ year old fleet back into operation. As an aside, have you opened it up to see if there is something obvious, like a piece of debris, rattling around in their? Aloha, Eric

I agree with Eric, TrainLi is an excellent dealer, you might also check out local clubs and their experences, Garden Railway's Magazine has a list of ones in your area, this is just 1 that I found, Bill    Coastal Carolina Garden Railroad Society. Havelock, NC 28532
