FOr Lionel that's what you have to do So if you get into other manufacturers find some that have parts. This is true for steamers. That is why I like Mantua and Yardbird trains. Just be thankful they are still around and inexpensive. It is one positive thing about ebay.
Being the same company and the same time they should.
I can't guarantee it. What I have is a Hong Kong version of the burlington 181. The other one I worked was slightly different and had a center weight like yous. Now yours still has the frame on it so the shell should inter change with another frame. You can always ask the sellers if the weight says Lionel Michigan.
It's shopping season. Demand is up.
Most auctions end Sunday night in a rush. It may be best to look for a diffierent end time.
Sometimes you bid against part brokers. (sellers).
It may have electronics.
Sellers overprice them.
It's just the way the market is.
You can waste time and wait or just get it over with.
These seem to be the determining factors.
Try looking for a lot or an un named engine that fits your bill.
If you search for a GP -9 you will bid against people who know what a GP -9 is. But search for a lot or diesel engine. Ahhh you may find one.
