ACL M-3 Wood caboose

Although I model the NYC, my current plans are to complete a ACL M-3 wood caboose kit from American Model Builders (AMB) and detail the interior.


The NYC only purchased two F2 A-units from EMD in July 1946: #1604 & #1605.  This will be painted and detailed in the original "cat whisker" scheme and will be MU'd with a set of NYC FT A-Bs in the same scheme.

Con-Cor NYC Aerotrain: Adding gyralights - COMPLETE!

The Con-Cor Aerotrain allowed a single DCC decoder to control front & rear lighting.  However, there were not enough auxiliary outputs to add gyralighting to the observation car.  I isolated and installed a TCS "function-only" FL4 decoder in the observation car and now have gyralight in forward and reverse.
