Hi, I am in Calgary Alberta and would like to know where the nearest "resource" for getting HO diesel parts. Specifically, DA 2202 grabirons and the DW mu cable sets. A quick internet search shows not many stores sell detail parts, and those that do have a limited supply. So, other than Walthers, is there a store with a good supply of detail parts in Canada?
There are two good sources in Canada that I've bought from. Central Hobbies in Vancouver had good supplies of "bits". The other was George's Trains in Toronto, but I'm not sure if that store is still open. Cheers Steve NZ
Thanks for the suggestions. Ebay does not neccessarily have want you want when you need it, on a reliable basis. Also, it is rather a "Yikes" moment when the item is say $3.99 US and the shipping is $10.99 US. Regards, Ian

Credit Valley Railway in Mississauga has a good supply of detail parts and an online inventory to check for stock. There is also a mail order/train show guy I use, TMR Distributing who carries a lot of details.
With Detail Associates parts getting hard to find, I recommend looking a Tichy Train Group. I use their 18 inch drop grabs for awhile now and you get a pack of 100 for the price of the Detail Associates. See here:
