I'm inclined to think that the HO's would be easier to revive... O -scale tinplate, we're talking 50's-ish aren't we?

All aboard!

I have rebuilt some Lionel locomotives and several HO scale models.

There is usually hobby shops in most larger towns that can order parts, or if you look in model railroader magazine there is lists of companies that have after market parts available for a price.

I still have my American Flyer set, probably dates back to the late '40s. I'm sure that a hobby shop that has a lot of train stuff can help you out. We have one here in Lynchburg, VA.
