      Haven't had much time to work on this in the past month, life has been getting in the way. But I have gotten a couple things taken care of.

       

      First I cut the lenses for the number boards.

       

      And started work on the electronics.First up was build a shelf for the switches and plugs

       

       

      I also made a rack for the electronics.

       

       

       

       

       

       

      And finally got to run a few light circuit test to get the look I wanted

       

       So until next time thanks for looking

      And a bit more progress on the electronics. Light circuits were finalized and secured in place.

       

       

       

      Wires were ran as needed.

       

       

       

       

      And I sorted out the wiring for the plug.

       

       

       

      I still need to organize the female half of the plug and figure out how to secure it.

      Worked on getting the windows in this week.

       

       

       

      Also needed to add the windscreens

       

       

       

      And a 3/4 shot

       

      Also added the side horn, to finish up the details

       

       

      Now I can touch up a bit of paint, add a couple details to the interior and connect the electronics when I get them back.

      Oh, there is glazing.   I hesitated to ask earlier.   But it sure looks good.  You need to bring it down here to run.   Ken has already requested a session here....

      I know it's been awhile, but life gets in the way sometimes. I finally got my control system and sound installed.

       

      How the day started

       

      And with everything closed up and the loco working. The controller you see is from Tony of RCS Australia, one of his new Tx7's.and it's his RC system that is installed in the loco.

       

       

      Now I've never attempted to load a video, but here goes.

       

      well that didn't work.

       Wow again!
      She looks even better with the glass in, and sounds great. I like the horn.
