Thanks for the offer but no.  I want to replace/repair it.

I was looking for a fix because I have contacted BMann customer care who referred me to parts who has yet to reply to my inquiry.  I sent them my receipt from the online store I purchased it from.  Hopefully they will reply.  I am very frustrated.

I would be happy just to get a locomotive that runs right out of the box without having to call parts to fix it before it even makes a run around the layout.  I would even pay more for this.  Hear that BMann?  I'd pay more for a reliable loco.

I opened a brand new Climax today and had the same slipping problem near the universal joint.  The female part that attaches to the truck is cracked...on both trucks.  Sad for a brand new locomotive.  I sent Bmann a service notice/complaint a few minutes ago.  But here is what I am thinking.  A brass ring made from tubing of the right diameter and cut to length.  Maybe around 1/16" but I haven't measured it yet.  I think if this was pressed onto the part the crack wouldn't be able to expand the part causing slippage.

Thoughts?

I'd like to see a climax or heisler.  Atlas sure sold a lot of shays.

You have some very nice looking locos for On30.  How 'bout something for N?  Climax...Forney...Shay...Heisler any or (better yet) all.  The gear mech can be just for looks in this scale.
