ref your latest "that's what we have been saying"
It has taken 9 replies and 1000 views to finally get confirmation that generally Bachmann spares can only be obtained from Bachmann.
I did not know this and thought it was a point worth airing to the myriad of followers - who will be wasting time and searching for original spares on the web.
Speaks well for Bachmann reliability.

Not sure about reliability. Of all the locos I have owned from what ever company, I have never had to get a spare part apart from two loco bodies. One because I wanted a green version and one because I melted it with a soldering iron, doh! They were both Bachmann.

I emailed Bachmann last night about some spares and received an email first thing this morning asking me to phone.
I did, and an accessory pack and body screws for an eBay purchase are on the way.
First class service.

General note Bachmann are not selling some items now for general split chassis types ie early 1994-2006. general parts like axles they do supply new inserts i prefer over other makes available. but things like front bogies for a lord nelson none, v1/v3 and v2 nothing ews vba bodies only no chassis, patriot scot jubliee nothing, j72 some parts but also ek exhibitions have some odds along with peter s.

I was unfortunate enough to drop my Class 66, only about 18" but enough to break one of the bogies at the mounting screw.
I contacted Bachmann to see if they were accepting locos for repair. They are open for business.
Sent it off via Hermes and received a delivery acceptance email next day with a list of service charges and payment details plus estimated return time of 3 weeks.
I am very pleased with their service as I received my loco back in less than 3 weeks, new bogie fitted, serviced, replacement of LED lights and tested, all for £42 - that's excellent service, well done Bachmann.
