The tether on the Lionel 18071 Daylight will not stay in the cab and will hang out the side of the loco. Per the photo, I removed the left side screw that holds the plastic cab interior in place and screwed in a 1 inch long #2-56 screw. Use this screw to control the tether as shown. I still need to paint the screw black.
Also, if you shim the back two #6-32 frame to shell screws with a .050 inch thick lock washer, then the orange loco stripe will better line up with the tender stripe. A .125 inch shim would be better but then you will need to use longer frame to shell screws.
