I have an IHC (stamped Mehano) 2-6-0 loco for which I need a replacement rear truck (with coupler) for the tender. I believe the Mehano p/n is P522-090. Anyone know where I can find one?

Tried ebay as well as google to no avail. It’s not a typical part as it has a drawbar and frame for a coupler attached to it.

Try searching eBay for AHM/Rivarossi parts. Many Mahano models were originally AHM and Rivarossi...

Truck-mounted couplers

Without photos I can't see what you have/need in terms of a replacement truck assembly. It sounds like you are, perhaps, unlikely to be able to find a direct factory replacement part. If that turns out to be the case, It may be possible to substitute another brand of what's sometimes called a "Talgo" type truck, meaning one with an a projecting arm on which a coupler is mounted. These are actually quite common, in multiple brands and scales. Kadee makes trucks with their excellent couplers attached in HO-scale, and several different styles. If you check their website, perhaps you will find one that will fit on your model.

good luck;

I think Traction Fan nailed it. I didn't even know Kadee makes trucks too. If that route doesn't work out the only thing left to do would be to hunt around ebay for a busted up "parts" loco of the same make and model you have.

Kadee & Micro-Trains trucks

Yes, Kadee makes a full line of trucks, with, or without, couplers attached, Bettendorf, Roller Bearing, Archbar, and other designs. They also make all-metal trucks in HO-scale. :thumbsup:

Micro-Trains, the equivalent of Kadee for N & Z scales, makes a similar complete line of trucks in these smaller scales. Sadly, for small scale modelers, like me, Micro-Trains does not make any all-metal trucks! :smilie_daumenneg: :mad: :rippedhand:
