I need 8 new wheel rubbers for my HO engine, the ones I have dried up and broke. Anyone know where I can get them? I can't find them on the net because I don't know what they are called. I'll pay someone if you just want to mail me some.

8? That's got to be some engine if there's enough pick ups with 8 wheels blocked. (Or are you talking about multiple engines here?) Traction tires are rubber and will keep electricity from getting to your motors, so make sure you only use them where you have to.

LGB engines also are known for using skates to "clean" and pickup electicity from the rails. It's not so bad if you have your wheels blocked off...
I've encountered that a few times... It's rather annoying, as most my trains aren't long enough to prevent a locomotive from pulling them anyway. When one of those silly things breaks, I've got to find or buy another one...
European models normally use tyres on driving wheels, but different manufacturers use different qualities. The softer ones with the best grip tend to be affected by oil. The harder ones give very little grip. Those from Marklin and from Roco are of good quality and come in a variety of sizes.
THAT'S IT! I CAN'T BELIVE IT. I just happend to have a piece of Thermo-pipe the exact size I needed and with a scissors and a candle, I just repaired the engine in about 6 min. Now I have enough for 10 more engines! That was the Best Idea!
