Broadway limited HO locomotive to tender connector tether
Posted by Locojunkie on Thursday, October 8, 2020 10:18 AM

Does anyone know where I can locate a 9 pin wire female jst connector by a 9 pin wire female jst connector that connects the locomotive to the tender? I contacted Broadway limited and they no longer have that part and can't get the part. Or does anyone know where I can locate the part or how to fix it. The wires have pulled out of the plug completely. Thanks for all the help.

What is the nature of the plug disfunction? Is the plastic broken? Has a wire or two been pulled from the plug? Once the readers know what is damaged, we may be able to help you better/ Can you provide a photo of the damage?

Wires can often be re-inserted into such plugs just like the original assembly, if you're careful.

Was this by any chance a 2-6-6-4?

No a PCM Broadway limited Y6b connector.

Maybe the 2-8-8-2 Y6b and 2-6-6-4 Class A use a similar connector.

Every used class A I have looked at has had wire problems in the engine-tender connector.
