LGB-20882-145 Idler Gear Set for 2-4-0 and others 

Original LGB Part often referred to as 2-4-0 Idler gear (35/25 teeth)

This Idler-Gear is for the following engines: for 20882 (#145), 2x23X (American 2-4-0 | 0-4-0) ,  2x8X0, 2x851, 21881, 20892 (teeth 35/25) (2 pcs)

Seldom idler gears go defective in normal operation.  We find when we see defective idler gears the following reasons as one or multiple root causes:

  • Gearbox journals are worn out\

  • Gear lids are slightly bent and motor doesn't engage fully

  • Not properly quartered axles and therefore the movement is impacted and leads to quick ware on idler gears

  • Too heavy loads are being pulled

  • Sudden Stop or even worth quick reverse of voltage
