If Life-Like can't help, I can provide one.  I fried one of my locomotives 
a couple of Christmases ago, and have set it aside to replace the drive 
train.  In the interim, I came across a replacement almost for free.  I 
would be willing to sacrifice the drawbar on the fried one.  I think, 
however, that Life-Like will probably replace it for you if you give them a 
call.  If you need a copy of the parts list for the locomotive, I can scan 
one and email it to you.
