      WOW!  That looks great!  I see you've been working, instead of spreading a virus.  This is good for me, good for you and good for society in general.  Like your techniques.  So, I guess it a Pennsylvania thing to use Hershey Syrup as Alcohol?  Actually, necessity is the mother of invention.  You can distill anything if you have a need.

      That really looks great.  If I didn't have so many unfinished loco projects....

       

      The NAV Lights (red/green) are perfect for direction indicators when there isn't a full-time head lamp. You probably remember I used bi-color LEDs on Shorty, the HEP car, because when stopped, the loco it's powering has no lamps lit and I'm old and forget which direction it was traveling after a stop.  I used 5MM and they are awfully bright, showing up in pics when I'd rather not see them.  Absolutely required for ops though.  However, in Ric's case, he probably will have head lamp indication of DOT and can use the NAV lights both on full time as a reminder of his storied career.

      It's all in the pictures Ric as they are twins! I do need to add a few more things and I also reversed all the wiring just to be (I AM) a peckerhead. The traffic cones were a gift from Gary Buchanan as he thought they would make a good exhaust stack. However I thought they were needed for the road crossing on the "Timesaver" as there are not any crossing bucks behind the freight depot.  The engineer needs to get out of the cab and lay down the cones before crossing but the engineer you gave me is missing a leg as you cut it off to fit in M9!

       

      Can I play with madness for a bit and you signed the contract !

       

       

       

      Game ON !

      It has been a very fun "KITBASH" and still working it like a good soup! You can always add to it if you have the base with nothing wasted !
