Service & Warranty Information
How to Get Service Under the Terms of the Limited One-Year Warranty
When you suspect an item is defective, please check the operator's manual for standard operation and troubleshooting techniques that may correct the problem. Additional information may be found on the M.T.H. Website.
Should you still require service, follow the instructions below to obtain warranty service.
First, e-mail, write, call or fax M.T.H. Electric Trains or a M.T.H. Authorized Service Center (ASC) in your area
to obtain Repair Authorization. You can find the list of ASCs on the M.T.H. Website, www.mth-railking.com.
Authorized Service Centers are required to make warranty repairs on items sold only from that store; all other
repairs may-- or may not be done at the store's own discretion. If you did not purchase the item directly from
the ASC, you will need to select a National Authorized Service Center (NASC) or contact M.T.H. Electric Trains
directly. NASC Dealers are compensated by M.T.H. to perform warranty service for any customer whose repair
qualifies for warranty service. A list of NASC retailers can be located on the M.T.H. Website or by calling 410381-2580. Should the warranty no longer apply, you may choose either an ASC or NASC retailer to service your
M.T.H. Product. A reasonable service fee will be charged.
CAUTION: Make sure the product is packed in its original factory packaging including its foam and plastic
wrapping material to prevent damage to the merchandise. There is no need to return the entire set if only one
of the components is in need of repair unless otherwise instructed by the Service Center. The shipment must be
prepaid and we recommend that it be insured. A cover letter including your name, address, daytime
phone number, e-mail address (if available), Return Authorization number (if required by the service
center, a copy of your sales receipt and a full description of the problem must be included to facilitate
the repairs. Please include the description regardless of whether you discussed the problem with a
service technician when contacting the Service Center for your Return Authorization.
Please make sure you have followed the instructions carefully before returning any merchandise for service.
Authorized M.T.H. Service Centers are independently owned and operated and are not agents or representatives
of M.T.H. Electric Trains. M.T.H. assumes no responsibility, financial or otherwise, for material left in their
possession, or work done, by privately owned M.T.H. Authorized Service Centers.
If you need assistance at any time email MTH Service at service@mth-railking.com, or call 410 381-2580.

Steel Caboose
The RailKing® Steel Caboose offers a new level of excitement and realism
for your O or O-27 Gauge model railroad. Constructed from sturdy ABS
plastic, the Steel Caboose was created from quality components and has been
designed for years of operation.
The RailKing® Steel Caboose comes fully assembled, decorated and ready
for use right out of the box. The Steel Caboose features an illuminated
interior controlled from track power. Use and operation is made easy by
following the instructions on the following pages.
To replace the interior light bulbs, follow these steps. 1)
1 To remove the shell from chassis remove the four screws located
lower the chassis from the shell, take care not to pull the wires out.
3 To be able to separate the interior from the shell you need to remove the step platform from both ends. In order to do this
you need to loosen the end frames from the step platform. You must do this carefully so that you don't break them. Grasp
the end frame by the bottom and pivot outwards 5°. You can then remove the step platforms. 4)
4 With the step platforms removed you can then lower the
interior down from the shell (to completely remove the body from the interior, goto step 6 which is found on the back page). 5)
5 You can now replace the bulbs
by pushing the socket up from the bulb holder and pull the bulb from its socket. Replace with a new one, and reverse the steps to reassemble the caboose.
To replace the two red LED lights at the ends of the caboose follow steps 1- 4, 6 and 7 on the back page.
