Can anyone tell me if i can purchase just the 2037 Girls Steam Engine and Tender? 

I have a 1991 Lionel Girls set that the Engine Crapped out on it needs the Board and the Motor.  I have found the Board from Lionel but they do not list a motor so i am pretty well done unless i can find a motor.

and Besides the Williams looks a whole lot better! 
My only wish is that they used an odd Wheel Arrangement on the girls Steam Engine i would like to have seen say a Hudson Arrangement.

Have you tried going to a train show nearby you and find a junker engine and put the motor into the Girls Steam engine? A Hudson steam engine may work.
I did that with a Lionel 235 scout steam engine, the motor needed new rollers on the bottom & since it looked like a sealed unit(one that I could'nt open) I just replaced the whole motor assembly with a newer one. I bought the newer steam engine from a friend of mine for $5.00 because the plastic shell was warped severly from being exposed to heat.

Have you tried some of the bigger hobby shops? Like Ma & Pa Junction in Maryland or Ready To Roll in Miami FL.

Dear Bobbie,

Don't know if this book will help...

http://www.amazon.com/Lionel-Modern-Diagrams-Parts-Lists/dp/0897782852/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1276178544&sr=1-2

You may be able to borrow it through your local library's inter-library-loan system.  (Mine has 2 copies on the other side of the state.)

Sincerely,

Joe Satnik

Joe the Lionel part number for the motor is  10-8606-103

The Unit  is 103-1 Lionel says the Unit is available however the Motor is not it has been discontinued.  When pressed to how i could find a replacement  they were no help. So for about 2 years i have been looking for this motor.
I would like to get this Set Running as it would give me Three Girls Sets to run on the Christmas layout.

Dear Bobbie,

I did a Bing search and found this:

http://www.smittystoytrainparts.com/01c-lionelpostwar.html

and about 65% of the way down that page:

10-8606-103   Motor and pinion assembly (DC)             15.00

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Joe Satnik
