Polar Express Berkshire 6-84685

I have a question about this engine. Mine arrived in good shape. I opened the smoke box door and noticed there is a 4 wire connector that is not plugged in to any thing. Is this connector for a mars light? The owners manual doesn't say what it's for. I do wish this engine had a front coupler but I can live without it. If that connector is for a mars light where would I get one and what is the part number? Thanks in advance for replying.

One thing about trains, it doesn't matter where they are going, it's having the sense to get on.

It probably is for a MARS light connection.  Other Berks have them so I suspect the wiring is all the same.  The issue you'll have is a quick search found them unavailable in the road numbers I checked and the number boards on the boiler front won't match the 1225 unsee of course you net the 1225 ( not Polar Express Berkshire).

Thanks Marty. That was what I thought is was for but wanted to make sure something wasn't plugged in. This is the Legacy version.
