Winter Project

by -

I recently purchased this locomotive because it fits in perfectly with my type of layout. I knew this engine was dc only at the time but took the plunge to convert it to dcc. As there is zero clearance between the motor/weight, I drilled a hole through the weight to run wires to the tender plus using a cutoff wheel, ground a trench to the side of the coupler. Also converted headlight to LED and added tender light. Performance is ok, pulling power is good especially up one 4% grade with a half dozen (mostly) loaded cars. Quality could be better.

<br>It's a lot of work and if you try this you should be savy with tools and skills.
