Found a 1946 3854 Merchandise car I could afford.   When I got it, I had to fix the wiring.  When I took the boxcar apart I found this.  One of the retainers for the end pieces was missing.  One post was partially broken away. A replacement retainer would not work, even if I could find one.

After a couple of test prints I ended up with this 3d Printed retainer.   

A little glue and the end is now assembled tightly.

3D part make some repairs much easier.
