    I am a newbie to this forum and have a question or two. I have been seriously considering the restoration of several vintage train engines. My current interest is in the old cast iron AF, Ives, Hafner, ect. O gauge Clockwork (windup) engines, circa 1900 to 1920's.

    Is there sources out there for replacement parts such as wheels, springs, gears, rails, ect? I have surfed the internet until I'm blurry eyed, with no luck finding a supplier.

    If there is someone that could steer me in the right direction It would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum royryder1. It has been 20 years since I last talked repair with anyone. I have a friend that my know of some sources of parts. I've pretty much lost contact with those people, once I got married and moved on. When I did get back into model railroading, it was scale. If you have some time, I will be happy to see what I can find. Good luck.
