I know a million questions! I am a sucker for these old locos and this is a great canidate for a resto job. The wheels are shot, saw some on Mikes Trains for 24.00/set any better deals? When I do get the wheels I will need to pry off the gears from the old ones, any easy way to do that? I also need to rewire, any hints on how to pry off the pick-up? I also need a winged journel, a ladder, and the rectifer. I would live to do a one stop shop but I have no idea the part numbers and some suppliers only go by part numbers no pictures. I did no pay much at all and love doing this type of work. I am of the school of keeping these old Lionel's around, I would love to buy mint but then I would have to live in an old shoe!
