Yes, but it will require some basic soldering skills to make the connections to the new tender.

On the other hand, the drive wheel assembly w side rods and cylinder assembly with valve gear are both available from the Bachmann: https://estore.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=70_578&zenid=uie2nqp845s17oj9jalij2c2n4 , and replacing the damage parts should be relatively easy.

Good luck!

Oops! The cylinder assbly only includes the main rods. The valve gear (L and R) are available as separate parts: https://estore.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=70_578&sort=20a&page=5&zenid=uie2nqp845s17oj9jalij2c2n4

Having removed drivers and running gear from my 4-6-0s during kitbashing, I don't think it would be hard to repair your loco (of course, I haven't seen it,so...)... and it would probably be cheaper than buying a new loco.
