Acquired an example of this on Ebay. Good runner but one of the corridor connectors is missing.
What's the spares situation like?

Should be able to get spares from Hornby.

https://www.hornby.com/uk-en/shop/brands/arnold-n-1-160.html

If you don't have the service sheets, you can download them, e.g., HN3002 for the power cars.

Yes, the connectors are a pain! While I can see the advantage of being able to use a single DCC chip for the whole five-car train, as a DC user, I'd much sooner have had plain vanilla NEM sockets for standard Rapido or whatever connectors between the cars.

Cheers, NeMo

Panic over, found missing corridor connector on floor when looking for something else the carpet monsters had devoured. Must have been loose in the box and fallen out when unpacking! Thanks to all for responses.

Wow! We'll done.... that never happens to me - once anything heads that way, it invariably disappears.  :(
