The cracked plastic piece does not affect how the train runs that I could tell. AC speed controller works and tested train with track and runs train. I was unable to figure out how to connect the train cars, but I didn't spend much time trying to figure out how to connect them. 3 plastic train cars (a Slopeback Sound Tender, a Steel-Type Boxcar and a Red "Bobber" Caboose).
