    Default Old Atlas/Kato spare parts?

    Hello all... I was working on my late 80's Atlas/Kato GP-7 as it wasn't running very good. Anyhow long story short is I need a new wheel wiper for this loco. It was just so old and fragile that it just disintegrated upon touching it.

    I was on Atlas spare parts site but I don't see any parts available for the Atlas/Kato Japan models. Anybody have a source for parts or suggestions?

    Thanks in advance... Tony

    Looking further into this I found this page for parts.

    http://download.atlasrr.com/pdf/Part...Locomotive.pdf

    They state to call for availabilty. I have left Atlas an e-mail listing the wheelwiper part# 420018 and the whole truck assembly part# 430010.

    I guess I will wait and see what they come back with?

    Ok... a prompt response from Steve @ Atlas has me all fixed up. They still have the wipers so I ordered half a dozen. The whole truck assembly is no longer available.

    Tony,

    Would you have a part number for those? Just looking to verify that the number shown in the PDF is the right number. I have quite a few Atlas/Kato locomotives and might be needing those myself. Mine are Alcos but I think they were the same.

    Rodeo Joe... 420018 is the part # I ordered and received them on Sat. Installed them yesterday and they fit and worked like a charm. I ordered 6 but they sent me 9. Yes it looks like it is the same part# (420018) for the GP-7 and Alco RS-3 and RS-11 as I have all 3.

    Below is what Steve from Atlas sent me.

    https://shop.atlasrr.com/t-partsdiagrams.aspx

    attached is a link to our webpage that has the parts diagrams. For the most part we don’t have the older motors, trucks but may have some of the others. You can check by getting the part number from the diagram and using the search function on our webpage. If we don’t have it anymore it won’t be there but if we have it, it should come up.

    Hope this helps.

    Tony
