Worked on the front lighting. At the hobby shop I picked up a clear plastic rod, made head lamp lenses. Using Evans products fiber rod, slightly melted the ends for marker lights. Using all 3V LED's with a voltage limiter.

You are sure good with figuring out electrical stuff. I stumble around and some times succeed! Did get the Zephyer going.

Jerry, analog yes, trial and sometimes error.  Errors are followed by a POP,  smoke and foul odor.  Good part is the burned component is easily seen and replaced, unlike newer stuff where whole board has to go to a SUPER TECH, like Ray, that has the special equipment to isolate fault.  

    How about a video of the Zephyer, a real gem.

Yes looking good! You and Rob really did a nice job on those! That closeup of the nose shows how great of a model that really is :Slightly_Smiling_Face_Emoji(24x24):

 The credit goes to Rob, I just cut and spliced and had fun.  What I do requires no special talent or materials, just stuff around the house or at hardware store, and lately the net.  

  I couldn't help myself.  Found a 3V 100RPM motor on line and connected it to the same circuit I am using for the LED's.

Made a little more progress. The number boards are layers of clear plastic adhered to make blocks, then ground to fit into the openings. The numbers are part of the decals that Stan Cedarleaf printed months ago. As you can see his work it top notch.

I like your work, and it's well explained. I haven't done anything for a long time. In the summer we got a new roof. That has given a lot of dirt. Now everything is clean and tidy again. I haven't been running for 7 or 8 years. I was amazed that everything still works. But I'm ditherof from the subject.... Sorry. Again, Great work.

Jan, I like your two companions, thank you for posting them, names please?  

I do know what you mean about the dirt from a new roof, had mine done couple of years ago, have a ridge vent and so much more came in from that.  From what little I can see you have a beautiful lay out, can we see more of it?   Thank you for the compliment.

These are Cairn Terriers, on the left is Max and the other is called Moritz.   Moritz is fixated on me and pursues me every step of the way.Max is the boss and watchman or keeper.  My layout is almost 30 years old. I built the track and turnouts myself. I also have German rolling stock, but I like the US trains more. I want to get that for the grandchildren, I don't do anything new. I still have to remove the dust of the last years, the cat has slept on the tracks and the axles of the freight cars  are full of hair. I still have enough to do. I'll be doing pictures soon.
Thank you

jan

Jan, can see in Max's stance that he is the 'Alpha'.  My Bug is more like Moritz, has to be near me 24/7.      I am in awe of anyone who can build their own turnouts, way beyond me.  When you do get it cleaned up please post, or send me a PM and I'll send you my Email address.

  Stay Well.

Learning how to make windows in odd shapes, that actually fit.  Like the foil on the Mac Trailing car, I wasted more than actually useful.  I'd appreciate any tips, thank you.
