Coast Daylight, October 1954

Post by BrianMoore » Tue Oct 21, 2014 12:20 pm

I picked up the final articulated pair of cars yesterday, and am a happy bunny with my pleasingly accurate 14-car off-peak Coast Daylight. Here's a test run on my home layout. I've already been informed that the second-last car should be running the other way. Dag nabbit, etc.

The cars are BLI, and the GS-4 is a second-hand MTH product which has had the ghastly decoder removed (didn't even have anything approaching the correct whistle sound, never mind the programming problems and the jack-rabbit start). There's a Tsunami in the tender for sound, and an old-but-trusty Lenz 1024 in the loco for motor and front-lights control. I've replaced the too-small tender lettering and added some paint in a few places around the loco. I still need to cover up the aluminium stripes below the front coupling.

The train will be given an extended run through RS Tower this coming December.

Thanks for looking.
