Is this normal to have this much or any light leak to inside the cab or is there a shield or cover missing. This is BTTB BR 130 locomotive

Hmmmm that's too much from what I remember of those models. There was a weight in there that covered the top of the lamp if I remember correctly.

The BTTB BR130 that I received yesterday has LEDs (2 dual colors ones and one Intergrated on a square base, that is installed per end) instead of a miniature incandescent. It still had the incandescent lamp mounting and shield.
I just masked off the area with electrical tape All is good.

Cleaned and relubed all the mechanical gears and bearings/bushings. All the stuff that was removed from the wheel contact shoes and wheel wells, I could have knit a sweater. LOL
