 We have an old White Pass & Yukon engine that we bought used. It has fallen over and the rear truck had broken off the chassis.
The arm attaching it to the chassis has also broken.  I noticed that it had broken before and iI think a part is missing.  We tried gluing it back on but we don't have the flexibility for the engine to stay running on the tracks. Not enough downward pressure. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this problem.

HI,

Without seeing it, the only thing I can think of is to glue some weight above the wheels to increase pressure.  I might have some better ideas if I could see the repair you made.  If you can send a photo or two of the repaired area that might allow for better help
