Thats an excellent idea... Thanks for that...

Unlike the engine, the passenger cars are super lightweight plastic with nothing to them.  I think straightening some of the bent track and replacing the missing joiners and adding some weights would solve this problem.

Yes the set is 22 radius curves.

I don't think lights are a possibility for the passenger cars.  They're completely plastic.  I did see some newer ones for sale that are pre-lit however.  I think they were about 40 bucks each tho.

I really appreciate your help  Smiley

I've driven it around the tracks a few dozen times...  It goes pretty fast at full speed...  Just keeps popping off in certain spots... need to fix the tracks and get some of those rail joiners guy was talking about...

Cool

Thank you so much for all your help and information.  I'm gonna have to find out where the closest hobby shop is up here.  At some point I wouldn't mind upgrading the passenger cars.  I found some that are a little bit better built and actually light up on the inside.  These ones are lightweight plastic and hop off the track a little too easy.  That and the couplers keep coming undone.

Yes it was purchased at a yard sale... so the train itself is in fair condition but the plastic packaging is pretty broken up.

I hate to correct someone...but it is indeed item #00624  its printed clearly in the lower righthand corner.

As I said earlier, the packaging does not match any pictures I've found for this train set.  I'm guessing it was an earlier edition of the McKinley Explorer set.

I tried to upload a photo but it kept telling me the upload folder was full... heres an external link to the picture on my server

Hello All,

New to trains as well as your website.  I recently picked up a 00624 McKinley Explorer set at a yard sale for 20 dollars.  The packaging is in rough condition and there's a few problems with the tracks.

I was wondering if anyone knew if those track connector clips are available for purchase anywhere?  I didn't see any on this website's catalog unfortunately.  Or do I have to pick up new tracks?

I don't know anything about this set; ie: what its worth... or if its even worth fixing up.

Does anyone have any info on this set?  The picture on the package does not match my search results via Google, so I'm guessing it's an older set.  There's no instruction set so I don't know.

Thanks,
Jason
