Between 1983 (when I was 8) and 1989 I collected heaps of 12V Train sets and accessories but when it was deemed I was too old for Lego on my 14th birthday it all went into the attic and forgotten about! (It all started with set 7740...) Now I have a daughter who absolutely adores trains I have managed to find most of it again and incredibly it still works! I have even found ideas book 7777. The only problem is that the rubber that goes round the wheels on the motors (to give grip I assume) has more or less perished - they have gone very hard and break up on touching. Would wide elastic bands work as well?
I know that Lego stopped supporting 12V train sets way back in 1991 (or so) and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could still get the odd supply fot 12V train sets.
