#1001 Alliance Loco Power Mechanism Under Frame Only $14.95 each
Aero Train Frame uses Athearn parts to power the Aero Train.

You need the following to complete the mechanism:
Alliance Under frame #1001 (1 needed)
Athearn Switcher loco (SW-7 #4000 series or SW-1500 #3900 series)
Bowser #18940 40" Wheel and axle assembly (1 needed)
Bowser #856 Cover Plate (1 needed)
Any 2-56 x 3/16" Screw (1 needed)

The Bowser parts were used on the Dummy frame if you bought a Bowser Aero Train.  If it is the Varney you will have to buy the above parts.  You will also need to add weight to the nose of the loco to make it pull.  Bowser does not have a weight for this loco.
