I have two different Radio Control Systems. The All-Trol System and the Stanton System. I did a trial installation using the All-Trol System first. Today I did a trial installation using the Stanton System. These pictures show the Stanton System.
I have a lot of detail parts on order from PSC. I just checked and they have charged my credit card so they have been shipped.
Once I get the details and start adding them I will take more pictures.
I also order a few more Stanton Receivers with a different antenna placement. It will be shorter also and with a different way to attach the antenna it will fit easier in the Tender. I will post some pictures of the Receiver that show the different ways the antenna can be attached when I get them.
Someone asked if this was the inside or outside frame version, it is the inside frame version of the MDC HOn3 2-8-0.
This is as close to a set of measurements for a C-17 as I have been able to find. The drawings say C-17 /C-18 so I assume the dimentions are the same for both engines. One thing I do know is that the Steam Dome, Sand Dome and Bell are in different places. I have a few photos of the C-17 and a bunch of the C-18. In fact C-18 #318 is still in service.
Then last week this Hon3 "C-18" #318 shows up on eBay. It was listed with a first bid of $200. I watched it for a couple of days and no one bid on it. I decided to bid on it and I bought it this afternoon for the first bid amount. If the Tender is empty I plan to add Radio Control with Battery Power to it and will use it as a Brass Demo Loco for RC conversions.
The C-18 will also give me an engine to use as a guide to show where the details go that I want to add to my C-17.
