Bruk, Pat aka Harmonyards has a more elegant way to mount the motor, simpler than the way I did it. As for the electronics when I did this Lionel required you send them old RCMCs to get a new one. They would sell you 1st generation Legacy which used a R4LC and I found an early BEMC (actually a 9 bit Cruise M) now NLA. The downside of the Legacy R4LC is it only puts out one 9 bit serial data packet and the newest Legacy lite Railsounds boards require two 9 bit packets to respond. I was hoping to use the RS board from the Vision J1e 5344, perfect since the CV was 5344, but no soap. Maybe someday I will replace the electronics. You will have an opportunity to learn from my mistakes and do it right.
