As promised here is a photo of the finished 949's cab interior from the outside. I used a single overhead LED to illuminate the cab this time and centered it in the middle of the two windows. Doing this seems to have removed the glare off the nose of the locomotive. The engineer, fireman and signs on the back wall show up well with this new lighting arrangement. Also, I upgraded the windshield wipers on both my 951 and 949 with part number 48-34 from ScaleCityDesigns.
Just for fun here's a photo I took of the real 949 on May 22th 1994 in Hesperia, CA next to my K-Line version.
