This evening I finished wiring everything up (Revolution receiver, Phoenix sound board, new lights), tested it, and EVERYTHING WORKS!!! Whoohooo!

Of course, then I realized that I forgot to put the engineer in the cab, so now I have to open it all up again. Tongue

Right now I can only run it back and forth on a 5' section of track in the garage. I'll have to wait a couple days for our latest batch of rain to stop, before I can clean up the layout and get it running out there. I haven't been able to run anything on the layout since mid-October, due to the frequent rain this year.

Anyway, I still have a few things I need to do on the exterior of the loco before it's officially finished.

Here's a construction pic that I hadn't gotten around to posting before. It shows the windshield wipers I made for the loco, out of bits of brass wire:

Looks good, Ray.
For what it's worth, working in 1/2" scale opens up a whole range of model car
detail parts that will fit your Big Scale. 

Here are some Model Car Garage photo-etched windshield wipers:

They also have a whole bunch of other stuff that can be tweaked for Model RR use.
