Does anyone know a source for Minitrix parts? All I'm looking for is a couple traction tires for a Minitrix "Flying Scotsman" 4-6-2. The only parts alternatives I can find are Nurmberg (nicht gut, weil meine Deutsch ser schlect ist) and an East Coast facility that wants $60-70 to 'service' my loco after I sign here, here and there, then insure and ship the loco. Actually, running without the rubber traction tire improves electrical pickup. Unfortunately, it also causes the grooved driver to ride the rail and run even worse.
My wife wonders why I'm running around the house with scissors, '...looking for tubing and little rubber bands.' We thank you for your help.
