First, what;s wrong With it?
Bachmann’s warranty may cover the broken part. Contact them. They also might provide a list of dealers who will be able to handle this for you. (All this true for any reputable manufacturer.)
Second: What resources are nearby. A model train shop. A model railroad club? A person you know knowledgeable. Use them before you try something you are not comfortable doing yourself.
Finally: Are you an NMRA member? If you are, there is all sorts of on-line help and chat groups who can give you advice on your model railroad problem.
If you are not a member, go to nmra.org for more info. (National Model Railroad Association).
