boxcab_update_0.JPG (31324 bytes) Got the Trolley Poles Tracking quite reliably on my NCat loop.
Will connect the decoder to the overhead when doing the Lights
boxcab_update_2.JPG (14730 bytes) Hope this poor quality picture gives some indication of the light output of this Surface Mount 603 LED. After trying to solder to it, I'll never say anything about  soldering catenary. The Led is about the size of the standard light hole on the Brill trolley shell. Will be installing the LEDs in the BoxCab as soon as my Pacer Formula 560 Canopy Glue Arrives.

SMT_LED.JPG (35229 bytes) A picture of just how small a 603 smt led is!!!!
(This is the back of the led showing the solder connections)
BC9a.JPG (15757 bytes) If I had to do it again would work out another technique to mount the Bachmann Brill ends as access to the light hole is extremely limited
