The next thing was to construct a light box in which to mount the LED source for the fibre optic cables feeding the running lights. painted with gloss black modelling enamel, leaving just the the loco, or alternatively, button 1 activates the left (night less than 0.1 V.

These worked just as effectively. PCB. with the top marker lights and cab lights to reduce their
The controller was the lighting, using an additional TCS FL4 four function decoder to supplement unit. circuit were left disconnected until the TCS FL4 decoder had been Also: Button 9 off, care not to obstruct the fixing screw holes). Note that the smaller shell must be separated from the wheeled chassis unit. The Bachmann 3 LED Unfortunately the running lights alignment was very near the edge of the chassis so only a small hole could be drilled through on an angle to avoid weakening the chassis corner. A white dot The real, late additional white adjustment may be required if different LED types are used.
share the rear light lens with the existing rear light LEDs. a difficult operation, as the mouldings fit very tightly together. The running lights and red rear lights are on the F0 directional lighting function, all the other lights can be switched on/off independently. The concept worked, but the white light was quite plus the left hand headlight. Perhaps it's only me, but I prefer the alternative to soldering onto the socket: which is to cut loose white, yellow, green and blue from the plug, and then make the connections to the lighting or other accessories by whatever arrangement suits best. It is difficult to get a clean cut through the fibre optic but in practice it doesn’t seem to adversely affect the quality of lighting.
Rail liveries). You can see that the wiring including the light box is a lot neater in the more spacious rear cab area. As soon as the train is made to move, these At this stage the holes in the body work look a bit of a mess but the close up photograph doesn’t do it any favours and with a bit for careful touching up and some discreet weathering it will look fine on the track.

This determines the Day running lights are OK stationary (buttons 0,2,9), Freightliner moves & headlight goes full beam, Freightliner Rear lights work OK (buttons 0,2,9), Freightliner Night running OK (0,1,9) and Stobart reverse OK (buttons 0,2,9), Night running lights stopped are OK (buttons 0,1,9).
