A little while ago, I found myself showing off a running LGB train to some visitors. In a moment's inattention (ok about an hour's inattention) my Corpet Loco got caught up in some shrubbery and ran itself to a stripped gear - as well as wearing some very impressive grooves in my track. well I have had the thing in bits, and part of the main gear (nylon) on the drive axle has been worn to beggary by the brass worm gear. It doesn't look to me as though the gear itself will come off, so rather than replace an entire axle with a spare that probably doesn't exist any more, can anyone advise on how I might repair it? I did have a partial success with some Green Stuff, until the strain of pulling 2 wagons up a slope did for it.
