Bachmann 00 DMU unpowered bogie has lost its screw...
The securing screw that holds the unpowered bogie on my Bachmann 105 DMU appears to have gone missing. I've searched all of the track-bed and vacuumed with my hand-held vacuum cleaner - to no avail I'm afraid....
The service Sheet that comes with the model does not give a part number and I have not been able to identify the item number with a search of the web.
Can anyone suggest where I might obtain a replacement, not urgent as gravity assists in operation, but it should be be replaced for 'completeness'?...
As I live in Portugal local supply is not available, I have not contacted Bachmann nor the supplier - 'Rails of Sheffield' yet! but may have to if nothing else is forthcoming...
Kind Regards...

Try Bachmann through the website. "Service and support". They are usually pretty good about spares if they have them in stock (usually from returns). The postage is usually a !ot less than Peter's Spares for overseas mail, although I recall they do have a minimum charge for spares.
You could try Bachmann USA, lots of screws for securing trucks (bogies) to bodies. $0.30 each.

If this is a powered turret bogie have a look at some other service sheets, most screws are numbered.

I can confirm that Peter's Spares international postage rates to mainland Western Europe are indeed, rather high.

Bon courage,

Bill

Even easier just ascertain what diameter machine screw it is guess 2mm get any machine screw that size cut down to required length if head to small use a small washer job done

Thanks BCDR for the 'way to go', however there appears to be no section of the US Bachmann website where I could address the problem, so I have emailed Bachmann Europe and put the question to them... :sad:

Happy Christmas, Brian,

I have had a look at the bogie mounting screws on a 105 Class DMU (by Bachman) and was somewhat surprised to find that neither power car and non-power car have screws similar to the ones that I am missing. So I have measured up what I have and find 2 sizes! 2.05mm and 1.97mm, tried them in the unit and the 2.03mm is too big. Back to my 'spares' box and I found just one screw that fitted but the head was smaller so I took your advice and put a suitable washer on as well. SUCCESS!

Why I had not previously gone down this path I can't think, but have put it down to 'anno domini' kicking in! :roll:

And here was me thinking you had been through the spares.  :lol: The spare section on the Bachmann US spares is definitely there - spares and service, HO, common spares.
I have a supply of self tapers from Walthers this use for these occasions, along with some 2-56 machine screws and a 2-56 tap for slightly bigger jobs.

You could try Murphy's Law. Drop another screw where you think you lost the original. The law states that you won't find the second screw but the original turns up.

Thanks for this... Actually I did something similar, in that I used my hand-held vacuum cleaner over the entire 7m x 5m multi-track layout, to no avail I'm afraid. I then used a really strong magnet to 'filter' the contents of the cleaner, but apart from more damaged trackpins than I recall ever having dropped, there was no ferrous material picked up. If it had dropped on the floor, then it has gone, but thinking about it perhaps it may have found its way in to the other locos innards... I shall have to be careful now and look when I do my planned maintenace of the stock! ;-)
Regards...
