My  9 year old 0-4-0 Porter is having problems with the electrical pickup plunger springs.  I have heard about replacing them.  How hard are they to change out, and what type new springs should I use. 

Thanks in advance,  Joe

Here is the thread I was thinking about on the spring/pluger .
http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=21037

But I be warned these little critters are hard to get back together once apart.Several folks have said you might be better off sending it back to bachmann let them repair it.

Alan,

Thanks for the link and advice.  After reading about the difficulty of reassembly, I think I'll send it to Bachman to repair.
