I'm sure I'm not the only one who's had problems with zinc happen on the 1:20.3 Scale Spectrum Diecast Trucks on the Murphy Roof Boxcars.  All 3 of mine have had their trucks come down with zinc rot.  I was able to buy replacement ones for one, and get one replacement truck for another, but they're now out of stock and I can't buy anymore.
Do ones from Accucraft or Ozark Miniatures work? 
Also do you think Bachmann will produce a new batch given that they're ALWAYS producing batches of metal diecast trucks for the Spectrum Shays?
Any answer will help, thank you!


My recommendation would be to check out Iron Creek Shops. They will likely have something to get you up and running.
