    Help I have a Rivirossi 0-4-0 switcher that has quit due to wear in the front bushing. Is there source for replcement's ?
    It is a sweet little loco and I hate to just use it as a "yard queen".

    I second that recommendation. I've tried them and, aside from the warm personability of doorstops, they do their job and do it well. Take care to note the age of your loco if at all possible. Rivarossi changed tooling from time to time so parts may differ from one lokey to another---even if it is the same outwardly.:thumb:

    Thanks guy's. I got in touch with them and no luck. The round motor's they have in stock as well as part's,but I have the square one and they no longer have anything for those . I quess I will just have to keep watching on E-bay for another one to use as part's.

    If you want it to run better, but don't care about it being original, check with Northwest Shortline. I believe they have the parts available to repower all Rivarossi locomotives.
