I think this is two different questions, but the answers are about the same!
Look in the phone book, if there is a model railroad shop in your area it is very likely they can repair model trains (or know a local hobbyist who can).
If there is none in your area, go to the Model Railroader site and check out the classified (http://mrr.trains.com/en/Magazine/Classifieds/2010/09/Classified%20Advertising.aspx)
Now for a Lionel, there are places/people that specialize in repairing them. Which include restoration.
‘G’ scale trains might prove a little more difficult because some of these are marketed by companies with very little support for parts and repair items. Others are very good at providing repair parts so on that scale good luck.

Some random clips of my Williams Electric Trains S-2, my MTH L-1 Mikado, and my Lionel Santa Fe 2343 AB, running on my Display Layout at the R & D Lines Shop on November 23, 2006. Btw, the 2343, is a genuine Lionel fake, it was cobble together from assorted parts, and in fact, the lead unit started out as a unpowered Dummy unit. bencar.freeyellow.com
