So I am not a 3RS guy in general but I thought you good folks could help with this quest. MTH is issuing a version of the PP&L 2102 Switcher in the Montana scheme. This engine got shipped back east to the Brunner Island plant. I want to modify mine to be more like the prototype and one of the stand out features is the lighting package for remote control operation. There's lots of other difference due to a lifetime's worth of real world modifications, but not having these lights just wouldn't be the same. I am sure I could have some one wire them correctly, but where would I find lights like this in O scale?
When the Lokie showed up on the property the lights were removed for the journey and it was still in full PPL paint. The PPL logo was partially painted over with a plain white block. It also has enough horns to wake the dead.
One of things I just noticed today was that the cab windows have been modified. The windows look like they came of a GP unit. Below is a screen grab of the mth offering artwork.
The trucks and fuel tank are wrong too. The model is being being brought to market by Pat's Trains in Wheeling WV. I sent Pat a bunch of prototype pictures but I do not know if any changes were made after this artwork was issued. Anyway, I really want to add the lights, which I guess now means modding the cab windows too and trying to match the paint.
Any help appreciated
