    I have recently received an elderly Atlas Union Pacific locomotovie which was manufactured by Rivarossi. I am in need of replacement nylon insulating bushes which hold the rims to the axles. So far I have not had much luck. Can anyone advise as this loco is a strong performer and I would hate to have to retire it.

    I think everyone one the list would agree that we need more information about what type (model, configuration, etc. if available) of loco it is before commenting.

    I am afraid I am not up to speed on my Americam Prototype (I live in rural Australia). However the model in question is similar to a MP15DC unit with a running number of d.s.1870. I have been informed that it was produced between the late 1960's and early 1970's. The body casting has the number 12505 moulded into it. Since posting the original notice Atlas have informed me that they can not provide spares.
