My "G" scale 45 ton loco had an fall and snapped off both front and rear couplers.
I checked with Bachmann Parts and was told they did not have any in stock.
I hope someone on this forum have a spare pair they are willing to sell.

Are they knuckle, or hook and loop?  If they are knuckle, kadee has a number of different configurations.  You might check with them. 

Or get hold of a recent Garden Railways magazine and call some of the dealers who have ads in there.

I'd opt for the Kadee 779 or 905 coupler. (Same pocket, the 905 has the newer-style coupler.) This is a bolt-on coupler and coupler pocket that's perfect for the front of the 45-tonner. Here's a photo of one mounted on a diesel I did.
