Nice mechanism work.


Will be interesting to see what might migrate,

whenever that might happen.

Ok, what happened this morning, 1 AM.... 
The holy smoke exited the decoder. 

Did a test run, and placed a weight on the chassis,
somehow the loose wires came in contact.


Later today....
Cleaned the sideframes from casting flash + painted them.

Finished glazing of the body.
 
Painted two 2mm LEDs black, preventing interior illuminating,
and glued them in the headlights.


Also have installed a new decoder, and did another test run.



Now wonder where to place unobtrusive weights,
especially over the power truck.

Finished this thing....  Ok, still no decals. 

Have now a dozen yellow streetcars standing in the display cabinet without lettering.
Quite relaxing to build such a car with a resin body.

One of the nastiest perils, usually is contact of the LEDs wires to the brass carbody,
which results in immediate smoke from the decoder.
