A big whoops! ANOTHER loco is dropped!

Whoops! http://youtu.be/OvyIrsZ7Zhs

A brand new EMD GT46C-ACe was dropped while being unloaded from the cargo-ship at dock. Not sure of the root cause yet but this one is going to be expensive to fix. The frame is certainly broken and every rotating apparatus can be deemed scrap. Who pays this bill?

Nasty - but nothing a drop (or two) of super glue can't fix! (copying the best of modelling traditions... :D )
