      Hartland Line Car Rebuild and Upgrade

      I picked this up in a package deal with some damage to fix. I have been hit and miss on this for a bit, but for the most part taking pictures. It is a bit long so I generated a PDF for download.

      That did turn out nicely - and well enough that I'm saving your pdf in my HLW kitbash inspirations folder

      Forrest - I spoke with the folks at Hartland, and the cab on the Mack is the same molding, so the process should be exactly the same for the Mack. I have a Mack that is now on the new lights list.

      Yep, That cab is an HLW constant. After November SSD came in I called Phil to order yet another Mack drive, and a Sparky pantograph, for my very sloooooooooowly happening bash and scratch projects. I have an almost fetish for bright headlights so my process has been a bit different. (and to date, a bit less tidy) Have a couple where I reamed out the headlight molding to take a 10mm LED found at our now gone Radio Shack. Before Mike & Mary retired and became some of those RV-living grandparents, when running on their layout those 10mm LED would light up the neighbor's house: cool!

      Not one of those 10s, but test with a 5 and 4x 3.

      Those are sure nice 'bashed, Guys......    The Mack and the Hartland stuff is sure fun to be creative with...   Here's a battery powered, HO Revolution controlled Mighty Mack 'bash pulling Hartland V dunps.  The battery car is a Hartland Coil car...

      I've bashed a few Macks over the years as well as many of the shorty cars. They are the perfect blank canvas to start off with! One of these days I'll have to get some of my pictures put on this laptop so I can share them here and finally get a profile pic too!

      Looked at both of the web sites stated at the beginning of the video, and it appears to be primarily a DCC how to web site. Not particularly well organized for someone to search a particular topic.

      A little added information on the schematic included in the PDF and below.

       

      Applying a positive power to the common connection (black line) on the bottom of the schematic will light  LED D3. Reversing the polarity, applying a positive power to the common connection on the top of the schematic will light LED D2.  D4 and D5 are protection diodes for the LEDs.

      Since I don't do DCC in G, I didn't go look.
