Hi  Wink ,
          I have 6 N Scale Dash-8s and they have been running awful and been jerking and stalling all the time. I pulled them apart, cleaned, lubricated, run them in again and pulled them apart and again found out some of there gears on the wheel axle's have split. I have a close friend who runs a model train shop try to order new ones from bachmann parts but had no luck, weren't available & sold out.  Sad These are the first Dash-8s released around the early 1990s with white plastic gears. Does NWSL make gears for these? Or do the gears off Bachmann Plus Nscale F-7s fit them?

I've never had one of the older Dash 8's in hand but I wonder if the trucks are interchangable...

If so, just put new trucks on it.

Thanks for the reply Skipgear, I don't think the newer trucks will fit the older non DCC mechanism. I haven't had any luck trying to get replacements, my mate has order new axles/gears  from bachmann in the last 2 years but had no luck at all, guess there not available no more.
