Bachmann 2-8-0

Lost the drawbar pin to the tender of my 2-8-0. Any suggestions for a replacement besides the time consuming call the Bachmann for one small part that they may not have?

Piece of brass rod?
Yes, you may have to.
Often I find the hole is cracked out from impact or from heavy use.
You may also find that you will need to brace the backside with epoxy to keep it from cracking any more.

So far, on mine, once fixed they haven't yet re-failed.
