Hello all, 

I just received my new MTH premier SP GS4 Daylight and have been enjoying it a lot. Either in the packaging or the opening, one of the wires on the side of the locomotive was damaged and separated from the boiler. I've attached a picture of the spot where the separation took place. I don't feel it is necessary that I send the train back for repairs as it may have been my fault and is quite easy to do What method would you suggest I use to fix this? Is superglue a good option or is there something better? I don't want to harm the appearance of the locomotive. Any thoughts are appreciated. 




See the lower wire is separated at the joint.

That is the frond end throttle rod, and it looks like it simply came out of it's little hole on the expansion lever. I would suggest simply sticking that unpainted end back into its hole. I wouldn't think any glue would be required.

Just my opinion but, I keep two types of ACC or "Super Glue". First there is the thin stuff I get from the local hobby shop, which I keep in the freeze (YES I said freezer!), in order to keep it "fresh". I only use this stuff by applying a VERY little bit with the tip of a toothpick.  The second, and more useful is the "Gorilla Glue" brand Super Glue of thick, or "gap filling" type, which is sold in the local hardware store. I even use the Gorilla Glue brand of Super Glue for repairing the various things that are broken around the house, or stuff my wife gets at estate sales.
