Putting this under another heading so that someone who may have done it will see it that may not have seen my other post. I hope we can come up with a reason looking plan.
So I want to MU (I guess that really is the right term) two USA GP9s. My vision is for these locomotives to ALWAYS be paired. I realize I may regret this decision at some point. But the prototype always runs two low nose GP9s together long hood to long hood. They keep them together almost always themselves. They even park them in the barn this way. I asked onetime why they do it even when pulling small loads. The reason is so they do not have to turn locomotives they can just simply swap ends of a train and jump in the other cab. But whatever their reason they always have two together and always long hood to long hood.
For this project then I would love to make one locomotive hold all the electronics and the other hold the batteries and have them permanently wired together. I realize I can do this somewhat generically by just running wires between the two in a bundle. But isn’t that what they really do with the MU cable. So why not try and make a MU cable in the right spot and be at least somewhat prototypical. If I can’t I can’t but I am hoping the talented minds here have an idea. I do want them both powered. So its more than just battery wiring. I would need throttle control and ultimately lighting control that lights up the forward locos cab and headlight when its the front loco.
