As an LGB customer, you have the option to ship your engine back to Germany for repair or try to find our repair center here in North America.

You can trust us with your engine because we have the largest and most knowledgeable supply chain of LGB Parts.  As an authorized LGB Direct Importer, we know which parts are available (more parts than are listed on our website).  Additionally, our world-renowned cross-reference database allows us to match new parts produced by Maerklin with old parts no longer produced by LGB.

For the last 15 years, hobbyists have entrusted us their prized collections.  We offer quality repair service for any brand: LGB, Aristocraft (more difficult due to end of production), USATrains, HLW, Accucraft, Pullman, Kiss and more.

With our expertise of the inner workings of the engines, we are an excellent place to send trains for DCC installations. We make no compromises in our installations, going as far as to repair pre-existing wiring conditions. Our aim is to install the DCC system in a way to enable fully prototypical behavior.

If you are shipping us your rolling stock for repair or custom installation please use the shipper we trust.  After years of experience we entrust our shipping to UPS, and so should you.

TRAINLI recommends UPS

However, one word of caution: we strongly recommend that you accurately declare the value of the contents of your shipment in case of loss or damage. In the case of a loss or damage with a declared value, you will have to proof that you correctly packaged the product. UPS (as well as any other carrier) can refuse the reimbursement if they can prove that the package was insufficiently packed.  The recommended method is to purchase the $15 inbound shipping service from us. With this method, you include the dimensions and weight of the shipment in the order, and we will email you a pickup label.  Upon return of the product to you we will charge you the inbound and the shipping charges. The $15 fee guarantees that you are insured under our policies.

And don't forget to ask for shipping notification to your email address as well as to info@trainli.com.
