hey guys its been a while since i've been on the forum......I was running my Spectrum 2-8-0 Consolidated yesterday for the first time in a while and stripped the drive gear. I was only pulling an 8 car train using plastic rolling stock wheels too. This happened a few years back and I chickened out doing the repair myself and sent the whole thing back to Bachmann for the repair. Is this something I can do myself and are there better stronger longer lasting gears available now. Thanks, Rob   Crete, Il.
