Nice Job Bob!!  Pictures always Help......:thumb:

So is that a little On Off switch?

What is your plan on mounting it? Underneath the car? Inside the car unmounted?

As to the antenna........Whats the plan there? Can it be hidden under a roofwalk and still be functional?

Can the antenna be removed and a Smaller diameter Wire used in its place for signal reception? Would a Metal Ladder assembly made of brass work for example?

My thought would be a Brass ladder with the big looping handles on the end of a boxcar with the entire ladder as an antenna....Mounting pins go through the side and wires are soldered to the pin ends........If this isnt enough, Perhaps extend something like a pole for a signal flag........OR.......add a railing along the centerwalk of brass wire......(ive seen a roofwalk handrail on a proto photo but they must be unussual at best......still, it is a possibility if necessary.

Woody??? Any thoughts on this?
