Electrical Connection Problem with Arnold 2950 S-Bahn

Chris models N scale and sent in this question for readers:

“The wire between the end wagon and the power train severed during shipping, despite proper packaging. I don’t have much wiggle room to solder the wires together and am afraid to open the unit further due to accidental destruction. The connection is broken between the coupling bridger going into the the cabin that is the main power train for the locomotive. It is the DB Series 420 running from the 1960 to the 1990 in Munich and other cities.Arnold 2950 S Bahn electrical connection problem

Any suggestions? The train runs great and two of the three wagons light up, except the the one with the severed connection.

One Response to Electrical Connection Problem with Arnold 2950 S-Bahn

  • Sheldon Clarksays:

    If it was purchased new, return it to the supplier for replacement, assuming you’re in the EU; if not, perhaps the supplier can advise. Do not, under any circumstances, attempt to make a solder repair without dismantling the vehicle first, as you’re almost certain to damage the body/floor/bogie, invalidating any warranty/guarantee/sale of goods rights you may have had.
