Just got this on ebay. I am a fan of the BW80, it runs my O27 postwar steamers with ease. This one came with a case that was broken in shipment, in that the stanchions that the screws holding the case together, snapped. I think it originally came from Lionel with the defect from someone tightening the screws with too much torque.

At any rate, has anyone else had this problem? I hope to fix with Evergreen or Plastruct tubing to make a sleeve around each stanchion for stability and then gluing and screwing the assembly together from there. There is no visible damage to the electronics I can find and it hums along nicely.

It shipped insured, but the last thing I want to do is take my check and give it to the USPS. Any thoughts are appreciated.

You're not proud of your bricks?  Physical deformity?

Well, it is sitting in its box, on a shelf in my basement, and it isn't going anywhere. If you decide you think it is worth it, just yell.

It adds to the mystique...Where does he get such power?
