My SOTW is a Son-In-Law set in for repair. It will go to my Grandsons Braden & Adrick.
I have located one of my train sets still in the box, that will supply a modern replacement power supply and a couple of more freight cars. I have ordered Kadee couplers and metal wheels. I will also order two horns. I am trusting that Frankenstein will send some brake wheels.
I do need advice about some plastic compatible Grease and Oil for the engine. I would like to source it a ACE, Walmart, or Home Depot.
Relax Frankenstein, All I really need is the advice on the Lubricants!

I was going to add also, I got something called a Superlube "Sportsmen's Kit" or something to that effect off of Amazon. A handy little pack with a small tube of the grease and a pen-sized tube of the oil, for something like $9 or so.

Finally finished the Chicago bound train set. I replace the original F-Unit bodies as the Screw mounts were kaput. I also replaced the drive chassis as the original had a lope to it. Replaced several couplers on the engine and cars. Added a new power pack, track and 2 new cars. No new horns, they were like $4 per set, so I opted to trust the youngster would just break them again. It has a standard 8 Wheel drive W/O Flywheels and a dummy unit. due to a work project it has been almost 90 days from when I got it.

umpdan31: JadeFog: i found a brand new in the box ConCor PRR mail car. Although the ones that I already have are all heavyweights with 6 wheel trucks, this one is a lightweight with 4 wheel trucks. I also picked up a few assorted couplers. Glad he was open again.

umpdan31: The mail car was 10 bucks. Not bad for a brand new car.
