Greetings Dutch,

I had a similar problem with a Paragon 1 Class A.  Do you know which gear it is that is damaged?

In my Class A it was actually a radial crack in the collet on one of the main driver axle gears.  There was no replacement gear available for it as well.  I was able to repair the gear with JB Weld and re-install it.  The locomotive has worked fine since the repair.  If I can help by providing more detail just let me know.
