Note that there are links for both of those sites in my previous post on the topic.Two very good places to visit for Lionel train parts are: Smitty's Toy Train Parts and East Coast Train Parts. Olsen's Toy trains also has parts for postwar trains and accessories. A Google search of these on-line stores will send you to their sites.
I second the motion.I am new to this, but I must say the guy at TRAIN TENDER, is great: he is always available on the phone, very patient, well stocked, ships immediately-even before you mail the check. He is the best!
They are expensive too, I have been watching them for a while.
Does he have a web site?Another parts source I have found is CHARLIE'S TRAINS. He is mainly a wire an light bulb source, but also carries a number of post war parts. He in Classic Toy Trains.
Have you checked with Jeff from ttender.com? 585-229-2050Hi All,
Looking for bulk quantity 022 switch lanterns.
Notice repro ones fit loose in postwar 022 machines.
Noticed a locking bump on older lantern, it had no hole on top to help vent bulb heat.
I see 50 on eBay however, fear they will be loose fitting in the machine.
Any source, or comments most welcome.
You're welcome, but I don't deserve the credit really, TT was recommended to me by Big Ed in the thread about the 2660 crane. I just like to pass it forward.Hi Michelle,
Perfect! Looked at many sources however, TT looks to be my kind of place. Glad to have helpful folks like yourself for folks that need allot of help like myself... Whatever got you interested in model trains if I may be so bold as to ask? Cheers, & Thanks Again -GT
