6.17.08 - Mogul Parts Arrive

For a number of years, our LGB Pennsylvania Mogul has been in need of some replacement parts, specifically the smokestack and part of the headlight. The smokestack is not a separate piece. To replace it, the entire front end of the boiler must be replaced. The part of the headlight that needed replacing screws onto the boiler and holds the headlight in place. The headlight currently tilts forward and down. Back in May, we ordered the parts from LGB in Germany, which is currently recovering from a change of ownership from Ernst Paul Lehmann Patentwerk to Marklin. The parts arrived today and we will install them soon. We will post details on the installation process.
