Purchased an MTH Gabe The Lamplighter at a local show this morning. When I removed it from the box I noticed the black wire coming out of the central opening in the green platform is free and not connected to anything. If anyone has the MTH version of Gabe please look at where the black wire should be soldered. A second wire connects the upper and lower bulb housings. This wire is fine. Reach me at email@example.com Thanks for your help.
