Con-Cor/Kato JNR DD13 N scale Centercab Switcher, circa 1978---boo boos.... has developed a nasty grind, especially climbing grades. Further inspection revealed a gear that has had half of its teeth chewed off by the worm gear...

...what it should look like...


...what it now looks like.

By removing these three spur gears, including the offending one, I am now able to run it still...albeit with greatly reduced traction ability...


I wonder if Kato still stocks 35 year old locomotive parts?
