9v Train advice needed.

edited January 2012 in Everything else LEGO
Hi guys, Need some advice. I got the 4559 Cargo Railway set a while back and over xmas i set it up and my boy had some fun with it. But i realised that the connector from the speed unit and the track has become worn and the plastic is coming away from the metal wiring. I can get a photo taken but not at present as its packed away.

Does anyone know if i could replace the wiring and with what kind? I don't really wnat to pay out loads for a replacemnet. Also if i cn't do it myself where would the best place be to get done? Does Maplins do repairs?

Thanks in advance.

    These things are just a few quid on bricklink, certainly cheaper than paying somebody to repair it for you.
    I obviously haven't seen the damage to yours, but I'd just cut the wires, trim, solder and then use some insulating tape.
    I'd probably also order a new one from BL.

    @Hob - Agreed, bricklink is a much better avenue for replacement if you are not electronically inclined. They are relatively cheap and availalble. I've picked up a few spares for my layout just in case.

    Yeah i can see them there now did have a look before but thought i'd ask here first. Dangerous though as i've seen lots of 9v track listed stright and curves. Really wanna buy lots of that so i can expand my layout.
