I don;t understand why Bachmann would not have replacement parts for it's products. I recently bought a gently used but fairly old Alco PA-1 and need new traction tires for it. Can anyone help me out?

Except for a few "SD's", almost everyone's diesels use the same size traction tires. These should work:
https://www.trainz.com/products/lionel-222-108-diesel-rubber-tire-6000222108

222-108 is the old number, 6000222108 is the new number.

Also available from 'The Train Tender': http://www.ttender.com

Len,
Thanks for the info. I ordered from Trainz. Let's see how it goes.
I wonder why Lionel and MTH dealers don't know this?

Unless they have an in store repair shop, most dealers will refer someone looking for parts to the manufacturer. I used to operate a repair shop and still have most of my parts references.

Len,
I appreciate your help since I know little to nothing about this hobby. I do live in an over 55 community that has a train club. We do have some very knowledgeable people in the group though. So I can get referrals and help.
Thanks again,
Fred
