The transparent plastic window inserts on my MTH Christmas Southern Pacific 60' streamlined passenger cars w/LED lights (30-68040 4-car set, 30-68041 2-car sleeper/diner set, 30-68042 coach, 30-68043 full-length vista dome car) became warped from direct sunlight after I accidentally left my west-facing garage door open for a couple of hours this past fall. I would like to stress that I always keep all of my trains in my home; however when I was cleaning and moving things about, I temporarily placed the clear plastic totes, which contained the passenger cars, inside of the garage. Bad timing on my part for the time of year--Phoenix can still be hot in October--where the totes were positioned, and for not making sure that the garage door was closed.
I was directed to Plastruct for acrylic strips and it has already been suggested that I try a blow dryer on low to soften the plastic window inserts so that they possibly might return to their original shape. I am hoping that someone on this Forum has a solution to this matter.
