Geez Bernie.. I have some Cox Hobbies Inc. part# listings from years 1992-94.. but those are probably pre-Leisure-Dynamics days? There were no 6000-series parts listed at all.

I know that you run a "tight-ship".. so please forgive me if I make a dumb suggestion.  Laughing I recently saw some 1979 Cox "vendor-catalogs" for sale. These were stated to be "not available" to the general-public.. but were large-format (3-hole punched) catalogs with complete-listings of all Cox parts that were currently available that year. If you don't have the Leisure-dynamics/Canada versions of these (assuming that they exist..) you may want to search for them, for your data-base.

Here's where I saw the 1979 Cox examples for sale.. (scroll-down to books-magazines-misc. near the bottom)

Are those the same size ID as a glow plug gasket, but in square rubber o-ring?

Maybe from the HO train line, a mainstay
of Leisure Dynamics/Cox. Huh...

Bob is correct. It's a traction tire for the Cox locomotives. From my 1978 Hobbec Canada Cox illustrated parts catalog.

HO railroading, that was a tough market to compete in and Cox never was much of a player. To our benefit they dropped out and concentrated on model engines, cars, and planes.

Our club treasurer Dick Maddox was Lionel trains VP for many years. I asked Dick about the Cox line of trains. To his knowledge, Cox wasn't producing trains. The trains were being offered through Athearns trains. AHM also offered identical in their catalog. Dick made mention of how trains made a few comebacks over the years but the negatives outweigh the positives and it was a tough struggle.
