Picked up a new-in-box 71-3004-200 standard gauge Hiawatha set at York. Upon unpacking it, discovered that a piece of trim was missing - the left-side piece of the emblem that wraps around the nose of the locomotive. See the pics - the piece on the right side is present, but the piece on the left side is missing. Checked through all of the packing materials (several times), and it's not there - guessing that it came that way from the factory, as it didn't appear that the engine had been unwrapped.
Looking for suggestions regarding getting a replacement part. Haven't yet contacted Lionel, but not expecting much since the set was produced so long ago.
Does anyone have one, or know someone who might be able to fabricate one?
Any help or suggestions will be appreciated. First pic is the good side. Second pic shows the location of the missing piece.
