    Managed to get the marker lamps on and weathered it up a bit. The shades are just pieces of plain paper painted an off White.
    Weathered with chalks and thin paints sprayed on, runs really smooth and quiet.



    Thanks for stopping by.

    These are fantastic. I have the same loco and would like to add sound along with similar details. The inside is different than the old Atlas RS2. On that one I managed to mill down the weights. Any tips here for speaker placement? Keith, make an enclosure?

    I used a sugar cube speaker and placed it on the weight without milling it, secured with kapton tape. there is no room for a Keep Alive (eg; Soundtraxx) it's too big. However I used the capacitor that came with the decoder, I was able to fit that in there. It was a very tight fit to get everything in that RS 1.
    Also, you have to cut the plastic headlight lens on both ends to make it all fit in!

    Robert, I have a Low/Narrow Sweet Sound Speaker that fits nicely on a milled down front weight. The capacitor for a Tsunami TSU-AT1000 decoder will fit next to it. Or, if you use a new TSU-PNP Alc0 decoder you can use my Low/Wide Sweet Sound Speaker in the same location.
