Hi Andromeda, I have studied your post about maintenance on a 12V Lego train motor and it has been great to follow. Now I am in desperate need for new pickup studs as the old ones did not reach down to the conductors. I understand Alainneke is not making any more studs at the moment, so I will try to find someone else to help me manufacture some. Is it possible to get your AutoCAD diagrams of the pickup studs? That would help a lot. Thank you.
