I see. Then I would like to see both before and after before I make up my mind to send the trains. I have seen people say their trains had more problems after it went to Lionel.
Given the fact that the sound boards are pretty accessible, and they don't need to remove anything but the boiler top and the tender shell, this should be a relatively easy change. Sadly, you do have to ship the whole works in as there are sound boards in both pieces. Anything can happen, but this may be one of the safer fixes.
I saw someone comment that his train came with all scratches after it was sent in to Lionel, so was wondering if it was worth the trouble. Don't want shipping damage or bad handling.
