  1. Hi guys ! Athearn uses 2 sizes of brass rivets on their Ho Loco trucks. Does anyone have any ideas on where a person might find something comparable? I've Googled til I can't google anymore! Thanks, Joe ! :rolleyes:

  4. If you disassemble an Athearn dummy or power loco truck, separate the two halves and inspect them, you'll see an eyelet that was originally a rivet that the sideframe pin (pins) slip into. And the other brass eyelet originally a rivet hold the metal straps and the halve together. I've accumulated several trucks that need these rivets to repair them. Thanks !
