what do you mean connecting pins? Do you mean one of the wires? or the pin that slides into the draw bar on the tender.What is your question. More detail might help

Same thing happened to one of the my Sound Value 2-6-0s.  Sent it back to Bachmann under warranty and, as per their instructions, with a written request I get the same body and tender back as they had been weathered, numbered and lettered for my home road and super-detailed.

While Bachmann honoured their warranty, and I got a new loco back in under two weeks, I never did get my original detailed and weathered engine back, just one letter for the NYC, I think it was.

Ah well, at least it now works.  :)

Cheers

"Connecting pin" is, I believe, the correct technical term.  :)

The thing that happened was that I moved the engine when it had no power

Just send it back to Bachmann under warranty.  Google Bachmann Warranty first and fill out their on line form.
